IMBA-Designated 'Epic' Trails
The International Mountain Bicycling Association, a non-profit, public-supported organization that promotes mountain bicycling opportunities, devised a list of trails it deems "epic." The IMBA Epics are nominated by IMBA clubs, chapters and individual members and selected by IMBA staff.
"Epics are the must-do rides that are worth planning a vacation around or making a special trip to ride," says Mike Van Abel, IMBA's executive director.
