October Events

Corral Night Ride – October 25 at 6pm This free fun ride will celebrate TAMBA’s partnership with the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship to build over 30 new features and jumps on Lower Corral Trail starting next spring.  Costumes encouraged, lights required – although we will have limited rentals and demos by JetLites.  Hot drinks and good times provided by TAMBA.

Angora Trail Build, South Lake Tahoe October 5 (9am to 4pm) 
CANCELED DUE TO GOVERNMENT SHUT DOWN

Sunflower Hill Trail, Spooner State Park October 6
Join us for some maintenance and final touches on the recently completed Sunflower Hill Trail in Nevada State Parks.  There are a couple sections that were never completed to the desired standards by one of the local conservation crews.  Now the park wants it fully done before we can start on the new Tunnel Creek-Red House connection.  Meet at 9am at the end of Lakeview Road (off the south end of Washoe Valley) for a 4wd carpool/caravan up the hill.  Due to the remote location, please bring a lunch.

Tyrolean, Incline Village – October 13 (9am to 4pm)
CANCELED DUE TO GOVERNMENT SHUT DOWN

 

 

Rose to Toads Ride 2013

September 23, 2013

The fresh snowy conditions for Rose to Toads 2013 made this a ride we’ll be talking about for many years to come.  Special, magical, amazing, and just wow were said over and over… with the occasional gripe about soggy clothes once the sun came out to melt the snow and get us muddy wet.  The pace was slow, the vibe was high, and it was fun riding with everyone at some point.  Some of us are still picking pieces of sand from our eyes and grit in our teeth, souvineers of an epic day.

If you’re interested in stats we’re still waiting for some final reports, but we had about 45 people start on Mount Rose at Tahoe Meadows, about 12 people finished at Toads (a few pushing darkness), and the rest completing at Van Sickle, Star Lake and Armstrong.

Thanks to the Jenay and Alison with Lake Tahoe Yoga for working the two rest stops along with Joe M – the hot coco and cup o soups were our savior.  Thanks for the discounted shuttles from Max Jones at Flume Trail Bikes, and from Joe with Shuttle Around Tahoe – and thanks to all the good folks that support TAMBA, we put this ride on to get more members and bring more awareness of the Tahoe trails…  Oh, and to have a super fun time too!
