With the forecast of a washout on Saturday, October 3rd, 2015, Trail Pittsburgh decided to take the annual Take A Kid Mountain Biking Day indoors for the first time in the history of IMBA. We can’t thank our partner, The Wheel Mill, enough for hosting all the little rippers for a free riding session, followed by a lunch with their families.
Trail Pittsburgh had an incredible opportunity to send one of our social media volunteers Jeremy Saylor to IMBA Headquarters for chapter leadership training. While in Boulder, IMBA trained Jeremy on best practices for social media, membership marketing, email communication, and membership engagement. The training comes at a perfect time for Trail Pittsburgh as we finish our rebranding effort.
In addition to spending 3 days in the classroom, IMBA took the crew out for world class mountain biking at some of the awesome trail systems in the Boulder area. Earlier this year, we were fortunate enough to send Colin Burch to chapter leadership training at IMBA HQ for trail planning and master planning leadership training.
