What makes a trail epic? In the case of the Edge Trail pictured above in Fruita Colorado, the tenacious climbs, technical descents, and the fact that you have to rappel down a waterfall guarantee it’s qualification.
Think your local trail qualifies? Looking for some recognition for your local trail builders? Well, now is your chance to nominate your favorite trail online to be selected by IMBA staff. The winning trails will be classified the 2010 Epic Mountain bike rides, and will be announced in the fall issue of IMBA’s quarterly print newsletter, IMBA Trail News.
Epic rides evolve over time â€” IMBA needs your help in maintaining and improving our online Epic resources. If you’ve ridden one of the Epics recently and feel that the ride information needs to be improved or expanded, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with “epics” in the subject line. Many of the ride descriptions currently lack GPS mapping or trailhead latitude/longitude coordinates. Photos and updated logistical information for the rides would also be greatly appreciated.
