IMBA 2010 Epic Rides Unveiled
The experience of mountain biking — rolling through a scenic landscape while challenging the body and stimulating the mind — has inspired millions of trail lovers. As the sport continues to grow, it promises to do the same for millions more. IMBA has developed models for inspiring trail systems that can be replicated all over the globe. The IMBA model trail designations include Epics, Flow Country Trails, Gateway Trails and Ride Centers.
The 2010 Epics were selected from nominations provided by IMBA clubs, chapters and patrols, along with individual members.
