Celebrate Women’s MTB Day! #womensmtbday
2018 is the inaugural year for International Women’s Mountain Biking Day, a celebration event to take place the first Saturday of May. Join us May 5 simply by riding your bike, sharing your love of mountain biking and showcasing your experiences with #womensmtbday.
Join us by posting and tagging a fellow mountain biker in and using the tag #womensmtbday.
“Engaging your community, getting more people riding and making a difference doesn’t require a big, formal plan,” said Aimee Ross, IMBA’s brand director. “Action of any kind can lead to inspiration, motivation and even more action. You can get started on the path to more women on bikes or making where you live better for mountain biking by just going for it and doing something.”
Women’s Mountain Biking Day came out of the 2018 IMBA UPRISING event, our first-ever women’s conference. Attendees were encouraged to share their best ideas for engaging more women in mountain biking. A day dedicated to women enjoying mountain biking with each other and encouraging fellow women to join them was dreamed up by Andree Sanders of Trips for Kids Metro New York.
Celebrate ladies who shred on the first Saturday in May, the first International Women’s Mountain Biking Day. Organizers encourage everyone to use the hashtag #womensmtbday to help make the day a social media-driven event.
According to the IMBA, its aim is to launch a day of local festivals, group rides, and educational events. “Action of any kind can lead to inspiration,motivation, and even more action. You can get started on the path to more women on bikes or making where you live better for mountain biking by just going for it and doing something.”
Whether you create formal programming, ride with your friends or introduce another woman to mountain biking, participants are encouraged to share their stories on May 5 and beyond. Send to firstname.lastname@example.org, use #womensmtbday, tag @imba_us.
