Ten $500 USA Cycling/IMBA Trail Tune-Up Grants are now available to mountain biking groups seeking to jump-start trail improvement projects.
Projects that create or improve trails used for mountain bike racing will receive the highest consideration, but funding can also be used to improve trails for race training and recreational riding. Applicants must be current members of the International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) as well as USA Cycling member clubs or race promoters.
Trail Tune-up Grants are completely funded by USA Cycling members through an optional land access checkbox on USA Cycling license applications and renewal forms. The program is administered through a partnership between USA Cycling and the IMBA.
The application deadline is November 15, 2006. Grant winners will be announced in late November.
