Thank You Shimano and IMBA Canada!

IMBA Canada recently partnered with Shimano Canada to thank the dedicated trail builders across the country.

100 trail building organizations across Canada were recognized in the Shimano 100 Trail Building Tool Kit Contest to help celebrate Shimano’s 100th year anniversary.

Each organization had to create a submission with information about their build crews, the trails they have built, their plans to maintain and/or expand their networks, as well as the positive impact their trail work has had on their local community.

We’re happy to announce The Friends of the Kimberley Forest were one of the award winners! We’re anxiously awaiting our four-piece Trail Building Kit which includes a Rake, Shovel, Rogue Travis Tool and Bucket.

Check out the full list of recipients below, and read more about the contest on IMBA Canada’s website.
