For centuries, trails have connected us. In the DIG series, we’re going to explore modern-day trails, construction techniques, and how trails continue to bring us together. In this first episode, learn how trails closer to home can put more kids on bikes and foster a community culture for mountain biking. The International Mountain Bicycling Association’s Trail Solutions team worked with local partners in Anniston, Alabama to revitalize their town through trails.
IMBA sees the future of mountain biking in going after opportunities for more close-to-home trail access. Their goal is to grow the quantity and quality of mountain bike trail communities across the U.S, so everyone has a great place to ride. With this video we highlight an Alabama trail system that developed through a local bike shop owner, Patrick “Wig” Wigley, working with the surrounding community to imagine what their economy could become if they had more local trails.
