IMBA Italia kicks off with a Trail Building School in Bologna
3 March 2015
IMBA Italia and Trail Solutions will host a Trail Building School in Poretta Terme, Bologna, in the weekend of 11/12 April. It’s the first trail building school in Italy and symbolizes the birth of IMBA Italia. The trail building school is one of the first achievements of IMBA Italia. Last August, several MTB advocacy groups gathered in the same village to discuss the structure and goals of a national MTB advocacy association that would strive for trail access and the development of better and more mountain bike trails. The first objective of IMBA Italy is to grow the base of supporters, promote and educate sustainable mountain bike development through communication, events and the planned trail building school in April 2015. This month, IMBA Italy will disperse IMBA Europe’s MTB survey to gain more data on mountain biking in Italy and get a bette insight in the wishes and needs of Italian riders. The long-term goal is to get to speak with lawmakers and environmental authorities, to represent the voice of Italian mountain bikers and encourage mtb-friendly policies.Check out www.imba-italia.org for more information and see how you can support IMBA Italia.
