The end of March in small town USA is very different than Vancouver, BC. First the weather is warmer and drier and second, many women in mountain biking were coming together for the first ever IMBA Uprising in Bentonville, Arkansas. We were interested in attending the Uprising, as it was the first time IMBA was providing a forum specifically for woman in mountain bike advocacy and a general interest in hearing what our partners to the South were thinking and feeling about their representation in the sport they love so much.

The melting of snow and warmer temps means the start of another great season on the bike and in the field at IMBA Canada. One of our first visits of 2017 had us presenting at Trailhead North 2017 and working with Lake Superior National Marine Conservation Area (LSNMCA) where they are creating some truly great cycling opportunities.
