The Canadian office of the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) is excited to announce year two of the Trail Care Crew program.

Directed by IMBA Canada, and sponsored by Parks Canada and the Trans Canada Trail, the IMBA Canada Trail Care Crew travels across the country in a Subaru Outback giving trail building workshops to IMBA clubs, Parks Canada sites, and Trans Canada Trail local, provincial and territorial organizations.

Running April through December, the 2011 season has more than 30 official visits and events planned. View the Canadian Crew’s spring and summer schedule.

The program, which saw great success in its inaugural season, builds on the 15 year legacy of the Subaru/IMBA Trail Care Crew program in the United States.

Hearty thanks to program partners Parks Canada and Trans Canada Trail. A generous donation from Loblaw Companies Limited has been provided in support of the IMBA Canada Trail Care Crew, and the promotion of the environmental benefits of the Trans Canada Trail.

Additional thanks to equipment sponsors Subaru Canada, Trek Bicycles, Thule, Camelbak, Kryptonite, and Giro, who make the day-to-day operations of the Crew possible!
