Announcing the first-ever Yakima / IMBA EU Trail Building School. A weekend (October 26th and 27th) of trail building, friends and fun.
Yakima and IMBA Europe are at it again… Yakima, a world leader in the design and manufacturing of cargo management equipment, and IMBA Europe (International Mountain Bicycling Association), along with our gracious hosts MTB Club Discovery, have found an excuse to get outside and support trail development benefiting Germany, Belgium, and The Netherlands.
This event marks several milestones. It’s the first trail building school event of its kind in The Netherlands / Euregio. It’s also the first trail building school that Yakima has supported in Europe.
Yakima and IMBA Europe continue to support organizations and projects that benefit the places where we love to play. “Trail building schools that help develop sustainable trail networks are a win on many levels. Our friends, families, the environment, local economies, and our industry all get a boost when these skills are passed on to the right people.” said Yakima Europe’s Brand Director, Eric Roesinger.
