IMBAIMBA will celebrate its sixth annual International Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day on Saturday, Oct. 3, 2009. This is a great opportunity for you to pass your passion for pedaling on to kids!

IMBA’s International Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day celebrates the life of Jack Doub, an avid teenage mountain biker from North Carolina who had a true passion for the sport from an early age but passed away in 2002. Funding is provided by the Jack Doub Memorial Endowment. The event takes place each year on the first Saturday in October.
