MTB Tahoe 2012

Join us this weekend for trailwork, group rides, camping, and fun for everyone.

When: Friday July 20th – Sunday July 22nd. Twilight Van Sickle ride on Friday, trail work on Saturday on a new section of the Tahoe Rim Trail near Stagecoach Lodge, social event Saturday night at Blue Dog Pizza, and group “showcase” rides led by TAMBA on Sunday July 22nd.

Where: Camping in Van Sickle State Park, Friday morning through Sunday afternoon. The park has tables and bathrooms but no showers, so bring your solar shower — or there are motels and hotels nearby if you’d rather sleep in a bed and join the group for rides, trailwork, and socializing. Lake Tahoe is a few blocks away, and the Van Sickle Trail to the Tahoe Rim Trail is nearby for great riding from camp.

Who: all levels of riders – beginners to advanced, adults and kids.
