The Clymb, IMBA, and 529 Partner To Raise Money for IMBA’s Trail Building Fund
Friday, October 22, 2010
TheClymb.com, a member-only e-commerce site for the outdoor, snow sports and cycling communities, has quickly become the go-to destination for the best gear deals online. Now they’re giving back to the mountain bike community through a joint partnership with IMBA and Project 529.
First off, The Clymb is giving you $10 for simply signing up! That’s free cash towards gear from Knolly, Kona, Dakine, Zoic, Luna, and IMBA. All you have to do is click here (http://www.theclymb.com/IMBAinvitesyou) and signup. When’s the last time someone handed you $10 simply for registering? No strings attached.
Second, make a purchase on The Clymb and they’ll donate another $10 to the IMBA trail building fund.
Let’s recap… The Clymb is forking over $20 to support your passion for mountain biking. $10 towards gear for you and another $10 towards trails for you to use that gear. Unless you’re into rollerblading and have come to this site by mistake, this should get you stoked.
IMBA’s also offering gear on The Clymb at a 40% discount for the month of October. And for all you that aren’t members of IMBA, you can get a free tee-shirt for signing up through The Clymb.
As if that weren’t enough, Project 529, a grass roots team out of the Pacific Northwest will donate up to $2,500 to IMBA, $1 for each of the first 2,500 riders that register on The Clymb, using this link (http://www.theclymb.com/IMBAinvitesyou).
This is a great opportunity for the mountain bike community to step up and raise some cash to help support IMBA trail building efforts. Before you put your bike away for the season, sign-up at The Clymb, get some MTB gear, and in the process help IMBA get more trails built and maintained so you’ve got some smooth singletrack to rip this coming spring.
See you on the trail!
