Shared from International Mountain Bicycling Association
Are you working to improve mountain bike access in your community and need funding? 💰
Each quarter, we select projects to be part of Dig In, a program founded by Shimano that offers an online fundraising platform and $2,000 in matching funds. If selected, you will not only receive a matching grant but also get to share your community trail story to a larger audience.
Ready to dig in and get more trails close to home? We are accepting Dig In Program applications from our Local Chapters and Affiliates until November 30th:
