Take Action, Give Back!

Do you enjoy mountain biking on your amazing local trails? Want to make sure they stay that way? Well, we need your help! Take Care of Your Trails is our annual campaign to encourage and promote volunteer based trail maintenance events across Europe. During the month of May 2021, the campaign will highlight all trail repair, clean-up and build efforts from trail crews and volunteers across Europe. The 2020 ‘covid’ edition of TCoYT resulted in 74 trail maintenance, building and clean-up events across 15 European countries. More than 750 volunteers contributed 6520 hours  of trail work to keep their local trails in shape and make them litter free. A great result given the circumstances and extra precautions that many local groups had to take to make their events safe and corona proof. In 2021, we have decided to once again run the campaign, with a real focus on community and keeping it local. We, IMBA Europe, see great value in running the 2021 TCoYF campaign in these unprecedented times. We believe as a community, we need to continue to move forward, and give back to the environment that allows us to enjoy our passion, mountain biking. From picking up trash on your local trails, to lending a hand on a ‘dig day’, all these actions help to maintain and secure the sustainability and future of mountain biking in our communities.

Awards

In the 2021 TCoYT campaign we’ve decided to mix things up a bit and get creative with our awards.  Given the differing situations across Europe, we understand big events are not a possibility, and therefore wanted every crew to have the opportunity to get involved, and also have a chance at winning an award. Within the ‘Outstanding Local Trail Crew’ category, we are pleased to announce three subcategories:
1) The Most Innovative Project
2) Most Inclusive Project
3) The Best Conservation Effort.
Keeping in line with tradition, there will of course be the award for ‘Best Trail Advocate of the year’ in both the mens and womens category. So start planning, get creative and innovative, be inclusive and we look forward to seeing what you all bring to the TCoYT 2021 edition!
