The cost goes up next week to attend the National Bike Summit in Washington, DC this March.

To help advocates attend the event, the International Mountain Bicycling Association is making registration available to mountain bikers at a reduced rate. People registering before Feb. 4 will save $100 to attend the summit. After Feb. 4 the cost is $375.

Held annually, the National Bike Summit is the primary bicycle advocacy event in the country. The event brings cyclists from all over the country together to influence lawmakers and share strategies.

IMBA will be present to help mountain and road cyclists lobby as a unified front as well as host several dirt-centric sessions and gatherings.

For more information on the Summit, go to the IMBA Web site.

Meanwhile, IMBA will host its World Summit this May in Augusta, Georgia. Topics at the May 5 – 8 summit will include destination and urban trail networks, land conservation and sustainable trails, youth outreach and new programs designed to grow local capacity for the 700-plus clubs and patrols in IMBA’s global network.

In addition to seminars and networking, the gathering will feature parties and riding — including a closing day tour of the Forks Area Trail System (FATS), an IMBA Epic.

The conference, which is open to the public, will be held at the Augusta Marriott hotel. IMBA received a limited number of discounted rooms available at a rate of $109 from May 3 – May 8, 2010. The rooms are first come, first served.
