TKMBD is an annual celebration held on the first Saturday of October. The event, developed and coordinated by IMBA, strives to encourage communities around the world to join together and ride mountain bikes with youth. Besides being good, healthy fun, the goal is to develop a connection between kids and the natural world around them. Bring your mountain bike if you have one. If you don't have a bike but would like to ride anyway, no worries. We will have extra bikes available for kids and adults. We'll also have snacks for the kids, plenty of water(bring a water bottle if you have one), and we will have a drawing to give away some cool bike swag. We will be riding the newly opened beginner trail at East Athens Community Park, which is the first official mountain bike trail in Athens-Clarke County. This trail was built by SORBA Athens volunteers.
Time: 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday October 6th, 2012
Location: East Athens Community Park (Trail Creek Entrance)
