National Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day (TKMBD) is this Saturday, June 11, 2016, and there are events planned all over the USA and the world to mark the occasion. Last year more than 15,000 kids and adults participated.

IMBA says TKMDB exists because:

Bicycling is good, healthy fun, and a gateway to healthy lifestyles. IMBA strives to develop a connection between kids, bikes, and the natural world around them while touching on themes such as bike safety, skills, rider etiquette, nutrition, hydration and sun protection.

If you have kids of your own, make a point to take them riding with you this weekend!
