COVID-19 UPDATE: TCOYT Campaign postponed

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak in all European countries, IMBA Europe’s board has decided to postpone the upcoming Take Care of Your Trails campaign. In view of the increasingly strict measures taken in various EU Member States, we considered it would be highly inappropriate to encourage groups to come together right now or organize new events. Especially now in many countries travel bans have been imposed, events being cancelled and meetings with small groups are strongly discouraged.

The Take Care of Your Trails campaign is not only an initiative to demonstrate how dedicated our mountain bike community is to the restoration, preservation and enhancement of  local trails, it is also a celebration and a bit of competition which should be open to all countries and trail crews across Europe. With the start of the campaing in about 3 weeks, we are sure there will be groups from several countries  not able to join TCoYT and therefore,  IMBA Europe decided to postpone the campaign until further notice.

Together with our campaign partners and sponsors, we are motivated to revive TCoYT 2020 the moment all signals are back to green, ready for a symbolic re-opening of the countryside and helping restart local communities with what we do best, maintain and develop good recreational infrastructure.

* Groups that already signed up for the 2020 Take Care of Your Trails campaign will receive additional information by email.
