Trail Care Crew presentations this week in Susanville
April 24, 2013 — Presentations exploring the positive relationships between communities and their trail systems will be occurring in Susanville Thursday, April 25 through Saturday, April 27. Subaru-International Mountain Bicycling Association Trail Care Crew will conduct the presentations.
Trails as community assets can improve quality of life and livability in a community for both biking and non-biking members. Mountain biking can attract significant tourism dollars in addition to increasing the overall quality of life.
With statistics and case studies, participants will learn how to turn a quality community trail system into a destination trail system and learn how to effectively market one.
The Subaru/International Mountain Bicycling Association, on the road since 1997, is the International Mountain Bicycling Association’s grassroots educational program and an authority on sustainable trail building practices. Two teams of professional trail experts travel year round throughout the United States and beyond, leading trail work sessions, meeting with land managers and working with International Mountain Bicycling Association affiliated clubs and the communities they serve to improve mountain biking opportunities. The Trail Care Crew program has inspired great volunteer trail work across the U.S. and abroad, which is a big help to government agencies and land managers who have limited funding for trail construction and upkeep. As a direct result, there are now thousands of new and improved trails in all 50 states, Canada, Mexico and several European countries.
