CLEAR CUT LOGGING THREATENS TRAILS IN CALGARY-REGION

Extensive clearcut logging is planned to take place this summer in the West Bragg Creek region of Kananaskis Country. This logging will have a direct and detrimental affect on 90% of the recreational trails in the region, not to mention the impact on the watershed, environment and the local community. IMBA is urging all riders to sign the online petition, and to spread the news. Action alert.

CANADIAN SUBARU VIP PROGRAM RETURNING

Effective February 1, 2012, IMBA Canada's Subaru VIP program will be reinstated. The program provides IMBA Canada members with an opportunity for significant savings on the purchase or lease of a new Subaru.

To take advantage of this benefit, simply contact the IMBA Canada office BEFORE shopping for a Subaru. Press release.
