Alliance ASE at IMBA Europe Summit 2024

We are thrilled to announce that Alliance ASE will be participating in the IMBA Europe Summit 2024, taking place from May 22-24 in the charming town of Mödling, Austria. This year, our very own Georg Koenig will be delivering a presentation on Urban Bike Parks – Cultivating and Educating the Next Generation of Mountain Bikers.

The Role of Urban Bike Parks in Bridging City Life and Mountain Biking Spirit

Urban bike parks are more than just recreational spaces—they are a dynamic bridge between city life and the adventurous spirit of mountain biking. Our presentation will explore how these parks make mountain biking accessible to a broader audience by providing a safe and progressive environment, fostering skill development, community engagement, and environmental consciousness. They serve as catalysts for sustainable urban development and social interaction, overcoming challenges related to land use, safety, and ecological considerations through innovative design and strategic planning.

IMBA Europe Summit Dives into Peri-Urban Mountain Biking Integration

The IMBA Europe Summit is a cornerstone event for anyone involved in the mountain biking sector. This year’s focus on “Mountain Biking in Peri-Urban Areas” is particularly relevant as it addresses the integration of mountain biking in areas close to urban centers. Attendees can look forward to engaging keynote speeches from industry leaders, interactive workshops, insightful panel discussions, and informative site visits. Social activities, including daily group rides, will foster community and collaboration. There will also be initiatives to promote the inclusion of women in mountain biking, with dedicated networking and riding sessions.

Connecting Communities at the IMBA Europe Summit

Expect to meet a diverse group of participants, including mountain bike advocacy groups, trail builders, professionals from the bicycle and tourism industries, land managers, environmental agencies, academics, public authorities, and guides and instructors. The event is designed to facilitate knowledge exchange, inspire new ideas, and build lasting partnerships.
