Dear Ms. Muse-Meyer

I would like to express my support for the Kirkwood Mountain Resort Bike Park Expansion proposal. The Kirkwood resort provides high quality recreation trails for all kinds of mountain bike enthusiasts. Kirkwood is a leader in utilizing IMBA’s sustainable trails guidelines which create long lasting trails that shed water and reduce erosion. The addition of new trails within the resort will also spread out the use on trails in the surrounding area. As outdoor recreation of all types becomes more popular, we must keep up with providing more areas for everyone to safely recreate. I hope you find the Kirkwood expansion project to be beneficial in social, environmental, and economic areas. I look forward to your consideration and support of this project.

Sincerely,

Visit the TAMBA booth at the Tour of California on Sunday

Tahoe Area Mountain Biking t-shirts

TAMBA t-shirts are in

The Amgen Tour of California is here! We have some TAMBA T-shirts printed and will be selling them for $20 at our booth at the “Y” in South Lake Tahoe on Sunday, May 15. Watch the race go by and stop by to say Hi! These shirts are likely to go fast. We didn’t print many, because, well, we’re still operating on a shoestring and a prayer. We will also be taking memberships ($10) if you aren’t an official TAMBA member yet.

AMGEN Volunteers Needed

TAMBA volunteers needed for AMGEN Legend ride at Lake TahoeTAMBA has committed to working a rest stop at the Legends Ride on Saturday, May 14 during the Amgen TOC weekend. This is a great opportunity for us to not only get our name out there, but also raise some much needed funds to help us get off the ground. We need a handful of volunteers to join us and work the rest stop at the top of Spooner. We would need two people to pick up the truck in SLT around 6-7am in the morning and take it to Spooner and four more people to meet at the rest stop around 9:30am. Everyone should be done by 4pm. If you can help, please e-mail Lauren at LLindley at pearlizumi dot com or at 530-541-9044.
