BIKE TRIBE (IT) CELEBRATES 10TH PARTICIPATION IN 'TAKE A KID MOUNTAIN BIKING DAY'

Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day has become a tradition for many bike clubs and other (community) groups or bike shops. Especially for Bike Tribe, the Italian MTB club that celebrated its 10th participation. 

TKMBD 2017 was the 14th edition since the event was created in the US, back in 2004. Over the years, more and more groups outside the US joined this event that seeks to introduce the joy of mountain biking to the next generation.

Bike Tribe, a mountain bike club from Salgareda, Italy, was the first club that hosted a TKMBD event in Europe. With its own Bike Academy, Bike Tribe has always put a lot of effort in youth development and coaching. This October, on a wonderful sunny day, Bike Tribe instructors welcomed a whole bunch of children for their first mountain bike experience, riding the local single tracks along the river Piave. Thank you Bike Tribe Team, let’s go for another 10 years!

Italy wasn’t the only European country involved in this year’s TKMBD. We’re glad to see a lot of smiling and enthusiastic kids in Germany, The Netherlands, Spain, Greece and Estonia. Here’s our TKMBD 2017 photo gallery.
