In support of First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move! initiative, IMBA has pledged to get 30,000 children participating in 300 cycling events on Oct. 1. We could use your help in reaching this goal. Broadcast Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day to your networks, host a ride, or sponsor the IMBA outreach program.
Since we believe that kids should be on bikes everyday, we're encouraging all participants to sign up for the Presidential Active Lifestyle Award (PALA), whereby you pledge to be active at least 5 days a week for 6 weeks. Youth (6-17 years) should get moving for at least 60 minutes per day, and adults (18 years or older) should be active for 30 minutes per day. What better way to get active than to be out riding a bike?
