NIMBA Potato Creek Bike Day: July 12

Posted by Adam Bee on June 19, 2008

The Northern Indiana Mountain Bike Association (NIMBA) is hosting a Bike Day on July 12 at Potato Creek State Park.  It includes a safety class, men’s and women’s mountain bike clinics, a mountain bike time trial, and a kid’s race.  This is the first NIMBA event to be sanctioned by the DNR.  More details are available at the NIMBA site.

Personally, I think this sounds like a ton of fun.  I’ve been thinking for a while about adding a mountain bike to the stable, and this seals the deal for me!
