Promoting Your TKMBD Event.


If you need help publicizing your event – we’ve created four posters in PDF form, which you are welcome to download and print out to use as you see fit. Save the file to your computer (don’t print from the browser), then take them to your local print shop or just print them out on your own colour printer. You can fill in your own event information with a Magic Marker or Sharpie and post them in local schools, bike shops, or community centers where kids and parents will see them.

Feel free to use the posters below –

Please be patient! Files are large so they might take a few moments to load. If you need assistance with posters, please contact program manager Justin Truelove.

Sample Press Release

A sample press release template that you can send to your local papers, and radio and television stations is also available. After you send the press release, it’s a good idea to call to follow up and ask them to publicize the event beforehand in a story or listing in their community events board, and then request they send a reporter to cover the event (download below).

Thanks again for hosting an event. And please remember to take pictures of your event, post them to IMBA Canada’s Facebook Page, and send them to us at
