On Saturday IMBA held their incredibly useful “Trail Building School” in the morning and then we all drove down to Genoa to break ground on the new Rim Trail connector trail down to Carson Valley. Over 20 people showed up to give a hand building trail. Volunteers came from North Tahoe, South Tahoe, Carson Valley and even San Francisco! We worked on about 1/4 mile of brand new single track side cut above a new trail head at Eagle Ridge. Huge thanks for the Tahoe Rim Trail, and Carson Valley Trails Associations for suppling tools, resources and a place to build. We plan to hold more trail building days in the near future, they will be fun and allow everyone to help out on the trails we all ride.
To close out the weekend, on Sunday before Chris and Leslie left the Tahoe area we had a small group ride down at the Pinenuts. Trails were surprisingly dry and it was great to get out and stretch our legs… but next time we need to show IMBA our Tahoe trails when the snow melts off!
