Date: First Saturday in October (next: October 5, 2013)
Location: Locations in the U.S. and around the world
Organizer: International Mountain Bicycling Association
What to do: Mountain biking clubs, race organizers, retailers and other mountain biking enthusiasts sponsor a variety of events designed to appeal to kids and families. These might include classes, equipment demos, races, or guided group rides. The IMBA also sponsors Trips for Kids, a year-round, ongoing service that helps individuals or groups coordinate mountain biking events for disadvantaged kids. There are currently 60 Trips for Kids chapters in the U.S. and Canada.
If you can't find a Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day event close to home, "sponsor" your own impromptu ride by trying out a new trail with your family today. Don't forget helmets, water bottles, and snacks!
