IMBA take a kid mountain biking day

Body: 

This year marks the 14th annual celebration of Take A Kid Mountain Biking Day, an event which has put more than 53,000 kids and adults on bicycles worldwide. Developed and coordinated by the International Mountain Bicycling Association, the event officially takes place on the first Saturday of every October but events can be hosted at any time of the year. This is great opportunity to share your passion for pedaling with kids!

There are many ways to participate:

Events range from a few kids in a neighbourhood to larger festival style events in a community park, open space or trailhead.
Develop a grass roots event in your community, support the national outreach, contribute to event "host packages", or join an existing event.
