August Angora Ridge Trail Build
TAMBA has an ambitious schedule of weekend trail days this year scattered around the lake. We need your help to make new connections or to make old trails more rideable. If you come out we pledge to give you plenty to eat and drink, to make sure you’re healthy and happy, to not waste your time, and to give you the opportunity to win North Star mountain bike tickets or lift tickets for any of the local Vail resorts (courtesy of Vail). In addition, frequent volunteers get the opportunity to earn TAMBA gear. So please support your trails by coming out to a TAMBA trail day once or twice this summer.

Angora Ridge and Tahoe Mountain trails have new signs! The Angora Ridge trail parallels the Angora Lakes Road from Tahoe Mountain Road to the Angora Lakes parking lot, crossing Angora Lakes Road twice on the way. Mule Deer Connector provides access from Lake Valley to the top of Angora Ridge. Note that these sign sport new “no ebike” stickers.
Volunteers at Toad’s Tuneup 2018
Saturday, 19 people gave up part of their Saturday to get Mr. Toads ready for another year of wild riding. The group created or restored 33 stormwater control points along the lower quarter of Toad’s. More trail days will be scheduled all around the lake. Check out TAMBA’s event page for more info.
Another exciting year for TAMBA all around the lake. For the south shore, we have one signature project and several smaller efforts on the docket this year. First we need to get all the trails ready ride…clearing downed trees and repairing erosion. Next we have some small trail building/trail adoption efforts including the Rock Garden Trail along Fallen Leaf Lake, the single track from Cold Creek/Powerline Bridge to Railroad Grade, and adding some exciting rock features to the Stinger Trail. We will also be installing signage and eventually maps to the Corral, Angora Ridge, and Tahoe Mountain trail networks. Finally, TAMBA will start work on a trail connecting the Angora Lakes parking lot to Lily Lake south of Fallen Leaf Lake. This will be an exciting trail and a difficult build, but will become part of the “Lake Trail,” a single track around Lake Tahoe. If you want to be part of any or all of these efforts, please follow this link.
