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.

Lunch for all volunteers will be provided by TAMBA and Tahoe XC will provide a BBQ and refreshments at the end of the day.

Toads trail work day recap

TAMBA had another great trail work day on Toads this past Saturday. 23 volunteers rode in to work plus Jacob and Nick from the Forest Service. We completed about 8 solid projects including rock work, berm building, log clearing, and trail tread improvement along with a couple optional features built. Dave Clock took some awesome photos of riding and working.
