Subaru/IMBA Trail Care Crews Return for Seventh Year
The Subaru/IMBA Trail Care Crews are back on the trail and focused on their most ambitious schedule of trailbuilding events since the program began in 1997.

Two teams of IMBA trail experts will lead more than 70 events this year in 36 U.S. states and three Canadian provinces. Their tour is highlighted by 68 two-day IMBA Trailbuilding Schools.

Sponsored by Subaru of America and directed by the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA), the Trail Care Crews work with bike clubs, land managers, and other trail groups to build and improve trails, solve trail management challenges, and teach the art of sustainable trailbuilding.

Returning for another coast-to-coast tour in their eye-catching, IMBA-decaled 2003 Subaru Outbacks are the successful teams of Mark Schmidt & Lora Woolner and Scott Linnenburger & Aaryn Kay. The Crews have helped build trails in all 50 states and a dozen other countries.

"Thanks to Subaru of America's support, IMBA's Trail Care Crews will continue to work their magic to improve trail access for mountain bikers," said IMBA executive director Tim Blumenthal.

Trailbuilding Schools are generally hosted by an IMBA-affiliated club, and blend interactive learning, hands-on trailwork and top-notch instructors to develop skilled trailworkers and crew leaders.
