What a great night with my ol’ crew in Guelph! It never ceases to amaze me that mountain bikers are such a festive bunch, especially when they’re amongst good friends and fellow riders.

Vice President of GORBA, Tim Crosby, going through the agenda.

What were they celebrating at GORBA’s Annual General Meeting?  Only 20 years of mountain bike advocacy and a long list of successes!

IMBA Canada was thrilled to be invited back to the Rogers Centre July 14th for a second opportunity to introduce kids and parents to the family-friendly activity of mountain biking. Last year's event, part of Parks Canada's 100th anniversary celebrations, was such a success that the Blue Jays wanted to do it again -- This time attracting over 400 people to take part in the campout, and to sleep under the stars in Toronto's largest tent.
