It's finally spring! And spring in Ontario means visiting the Toronto International Bicycling Show.

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Show last weekend -- we had a great time visiting with long time members and meeting new supporters! All in all, the weekend was a great success with many new members signed up, helping us to build more trails in Canada!

Now, if only the trails will dry out.

I'm happy to report that the remainder of the IMBA Canada Trail Care Crew's 2011 schedule has been confirmed!

Chad and Deanne are currently working in Atlantic Canada -- with stops in New Brunswick and Newfoundland -- and will travel back through Quebec and Ontario in September.

The Crew will celebrate Take A Kid Mountain Biking Day October 1-2 in Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park, then give workshops in Canmore Nordic Centre Provincial Park, and in Calgary, AB.

August 31, 2011 is the NEW deadline to submit your online nomination form for the 2011 IMBA Canada X-Fusion Trail Ambassador Awards!

We're looking for two advocates -- one from eastern and western Canada -- who go above and beyond for their club.  The sort of person who does more for advocacy and trail maintenance than everyone else combined.

Opened just last month, the IMBA-designed Valmont Bike Park in Boulder, Colorado, is an awesome example of how mountain biking facilities can be integrated into communities, much the same as soccer fields or hockey rinks.

Trip to Boulder anyone?

Last week, IMBA Canada staff attended the Ontario Bike Summit, where Share the Road Cycling Coalition CEO Eleanor McMahon announced the first Canadian Bicycle Friendly Community awards.

Congratulations to the City of Ottawa and Waterloo for its Silver awards, and to Ajax and Windsor for Bronze status!
