Dear IMBA Supporter,
I am writing to ask you to consider attending this year’s National Bike Summit in Washington, DC. Help us convince decision makers from your state to increase funding for trails, create better access and improve recreation management. You will join IMBA’s staff and dedicated volunteers from across the country (as well as a huge showing from our peers in the transportation cycling advocacy) for a powerful gathering and a great time.
To help you attend this very important event, IMBA is making registration available to mountain bikers at a reduced rate, and will host several dirt-centric sessions and gatherings.
Please consider signing up for IMBA’s reduced rate today.
Hurry! Early bird pricing ends soon. The final registration deadline is just weeks away and we really need you in DC.
Questions? Read our recent press release.
Finding money to fund your trip to the National Bike Summit might be easier than you think. Ask local bike shops, mountain bike clubs and your state’s cycling association. You will be spreading a message that benefits all cyclists, so make sure to go beyond mountain biking-only organizations and contact any group in your state with a connection to bicycling.
IMBA has a very limited number of scholarships available to cover registration costs. Send a 500-word essay to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “NBS Scholarship.” Include your name/contact information and describe the reasons why you want to attend the 2010 National Bike Summit. The scholarship deadline is Feb. 5.
Thank you for your consideration.
