In addition to hosting several the mountain bike clinics this fall, NIMBA has presented three clinics to a variety of groups in the Michiana area. A clinic was held in conjunction with a Boy Scout camping trip at TK Lawless, the South Bend Adventure Club hosted a kids mountain bike clinic and the Berrien County Parks Department hosted a clinic at Love Creek County Park. NIMBA has two IMBA certified instructors and several other volunteers that help present these skills clinics to expose the community to the basic skills required to safely enjoy mountain biking.
NIMBA’s recent donation of 35 sign posts to the Trail At Andrews University was noted in the University’s Andrews Agenda . The volunteers have already started to place the signposts on the trail and we should see arrows on the signposts later this fall.
The Northern Indiana Mountain Bike Association has donated 35 sign posts to improve the signage on the mountain bike trail at Andrews University. Over the last several years a dedicated group of volunteers has worked hard to secure the University’s approval of the existing trail while at the same time maintaining and expanding the trail. The trail utilizes some of the most challenging terrain in Michiana to create a 10 mile trail well suited for the intermediate and advanced riders in the area. NIMBA believes that providing the sign posts will help make the trail at Andrews University even more accessible to riders throughout the area that are unfamiliar with some of the unique features and sections of the trail.
