Fall mountain bike conference is set

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – For three days, starting Oct. 1, the International Mountain Bicycling Association and the U.S. Forest Service will host a Tahoe Trails Conference at MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa, according to a statement from the Forest Service.

The event, which is open to all members of the mountain bike community, will create an opportunity for collaboration between riders, land managers and the bike industry, according to the statement.

The goal is to ensure the future of sustainable and enjoyable trails in the Lake Tahoe Basin.

“I’m looking forward to this opportunity to share information, improve understanding and keep the lines of communication open,” said IMBA’s Tom Ward, in the statement. “This is a critical juncture for relations between people who are passionate about riding their mountain bikes in the forest, and those charged with protecting the incredible resources in the Lake Tahoe Basin. We will focus on this area, but I have no doubt that these discussions will be relevant to mountain bikers and land managers in other regions.”

Registration for the Tahoe Trails Conference will open on IMBA’s home page in upcoming weeks.

Registration costs will be kept to a minimum and a limited number of scholarships will be made available, with the goal of attracting as many leaders from the local mountain bike community as possible.
