Ep 48 – Creating New Mountain Bike Communities: Interview with Patrick Kell of IMBA

The world is waking up to the benefits of Mountain Biking, and now communities are asking how they can become the next Mountain Bike town or destination. Caliente, Nevada is doing just that. With the local mine no longer operating, they’re looking to Mountain Biking as the reason to draw visitors into town. We’ll hear from Patrick Kell, Grants Manager at the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) about how things got started, what trails are currently built and what the potential could be for future trails.
