The International Mountain Bicycling Association is hoping to bring mountain biking advocacy leaders, top federal land managers and key representatives of other trail and conservation groups from around the world together at the organization’s 2002 Mountain Bike Advocacy Summit, near Moab, Utah, April 18-21, 2002. The summit scheduled to be held at the brand new Red Cliffs Adventure Lodge on the banks of the Colorado River in the majestic Castle Valley, 15 miles east of Moab.

By bringing together a dynamic, diverse group for four days of workshops, panel discussions and brainstorming, IMBA hopes to inspire advocacy that will produce better mountain biking opportunities worldwide.

The 2002 IMBA Mountain Bike Summit will feature seminars on:

* The future of mountain biking on federal public land
* Creative solutions to urban trail conflicts
* Wilderness and mountain biking
* Taking grassroots advocacy to a new level
* Securing federal and state trail funding

Summit participants will also have the opportunity to ride the spectacular trails surrounding Moab.

“The last time IMBA held a major summit (in Arizona, 1996), we dramatically improved the effectiveness of our organization and work,” said IMBA executive director Tim Blumenthal. “We’re confident that the 2002 IMBA Mountain Bike Advocacy Summit will achieve even more for our sport.”
