Established in 2004, Take A Kid Mountain Biking Day challenges adults and biking clubs to introduce kids to the sport of cycling. The event celebrates the life of Jack Doub, an avid teenage mountain biker from North Carolina who passed away in 2002.

Developed and coordinated by the International Mountain Bicycling Association, the event officially takes place every June and October, however clubs and groups are encouraged to organize an event at anytime! We’ll give you advice and tips to structure an event that makes sense for you and your communityLast year, Canadian events – which boasted group rides, skills clinics, bouncy castles, and BBQs– attracted more than 3,500 participants. Internationally, events were held in Australia, Italy, Germany, Japan, Mexico, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Take A Kid Mountain Biking Day has put more than 55,000 kids and adults on bicycles worldwide. Developed and coordinated by the International Mountain Bicycling Association, the event’s global event date is in October. Since we live in Canada, though, we’re kicking off the bike season with a date in May. This is great opportunity to share your passion for pedaling with kids!

There are many ways to participate:

  • Events range from a few kids in a neighbourhood to larger festival style events in a community park, open space or trailhead.
  • Develop a grass roots event in your community, support the national outreach, contribute to event “host packages”, or join an existing event.
