IMBA plans its first Women’s Summit

By Stephen Frothingham

BOULDER, Colo. (BRAIN) — The International Mountain Bicycling Association will host a new event to bring together female leaders in mountain biking. The IMBA UPRISING event will be March 22-25 in Bentonville, Arkansas.

“In 2018, IMBA will celebrate 30 years. We have seen the sport grow and evolve, and it’s our duty as a national educational organization to ensure IMBA’s programming continues to serve mountain bikers’ needs. UPRISING is a new step in this commitment,” said Aimee Ross, IMBA’s director of brand development.

IMBA said the event will “highlight the best women’s riding efforts happening across the country in a format designed to provide best practices, information, resources and networking opportunities centered around four guiding principles: Build, Ride, Learn and Engage.”

Female trail builders, IMBA chapter presidents, ride leaders, coaches and advocates are expected to attend. IMBA said it will take information gathered at the event and share it with the rest of the mountain bike community.
