Ales and Trails Event, San Rafael, California
HILRIDE planned and managed a fundraising event to benefit the International Mountain Bicycling Association’s (IMBA) California office.  This fourth annual Ales and Trails was held on May 19, 2007 at China Camp State Park. Building on a strong foundation HILRIDE brought new features to this year’s event, including the Santa Cruz “Anti-Gravity Show” with Chris Duncan, local beer tasting featuring many local breweries, and even root beer for the kids.  A morning IMBA Cafe, guided women’s rides, interpretive rides, skills rides and a Shimano kids ride were also highlights this year.  HILRIDE also provided a skills progression course for attendees to ride while they enjoyed the gourmet BBQ, live music, photo contest and silent auction.  The event drew hundreds of mountain bikers from throughout the San Francisco, Bay Area.
