Subaru IMBA Trail Care Crew Visit!

Thanks to on-going sponsorship from Subaru of America, the Subaru/IMBA Trail Care Crew program is crankin’ again in 2010. Two teams of trail experts will travel year-round throughout North America and beyond, leading trailwork sessions, meeting with land managers, and working with IMBA-affiliated clubs and members to improve mountain biking opportunities.

The International Mountain Bicycling Association is coming to Tennessee. Chris and Leslie Kehmeier of the Subaru/IMBA Trail Care Crew will be in Knoxville for a Trailbuilding School. The Crews teach “sustainable” trail building, which means building trails that last a long time and require minimal maintenance. This helps reduce trail damage, protects the environment, and enhances visitor enjoyment.
