Trail Maintenance

IMBA Local Partner and
NICA Teen Trail Corp! 


Through PICL and NICA, student-athletes who volunteer outside of bike practice by helping maintain and cut trails are recognized through the "Teen Trail Corp Program". Student-Athletes earn recognition through volunteer hours. This is a year 'round program in which every hour is logged. Student-Athletes can distinguish themselves in the NICA community by earning the TTC Hours and TTC Captain Status.


M.K.O.B. is here to help by building community partnerships with local land managers, allowing trail days to be scheduled and carried out. We are THRILLED to announce that we are the newest IMBA LOCAL AFFILIATE!
