2017 IMBA Dig In Campaign

The 2017 IMBA Dig In Campaign is putting dollars directly toward 68 active, approved mountain bike projects in 31 states, including Santa Barbara’s Buckhorn Trail. Collectively, these IMBA chapter projects represent 500 miles of new trails, the maintenance/improvement of another 140 miles of trails, and 10 new bike parks/pumptracks. From massive, multi-use singletrack systems of 20 miles or more to an area’s first-ever bike-only DH trail to high school mountain bike racing courses, these 68 projects will improve communities, change lives and make mountain biking even more awesome.

Now through December 31, 2017, make a tax-deductible donation to the project near you; donate to all of the projects at once; or shop with one of our partners that is kicking back a portion of profits to these hard-working chapters.
