The International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) is holding its 2016 World Summit in Bentonville on Nov. 10-12. Yep, you read that right – its WORLD Summit. The biennial conference draws a worldwide audience of industry leaders and participants, with each host community adding its own distinct flavor.
Northwest Arkansas has been chosen as this year’s host because of the region’s impressive, ever-evolving network of bikes trails. With 200+ miles of off-road trails cropping up in locations everywhere, our mountain bike scene is booming! We have trails for every taste, and also the first off-road jump park of its kind in this part of the country.
Summit-goers can bike their way around the stunning Northwest Arkansas fall scenery and experience our distinctive downtowns, thriving arts scene and other attractions. In addition to industry specific events, the summit is also offering activities that are open to the general public geared toward visitors looking to participate in limited events. However, tickets are limited. Register now for these public events at imba.com/world-summit.
