Kudos & kindness: Big high fives from the Tahoe Area Mountain Bike Association

We would like to give a big thanks to all of the volunteers, businesses and organizations that helped the Tahoe Area Mountain Biking Association (TAMBA) during our Annual Rose to Toads fun ride on Sept. 4. We couldn’t have put on this event without their help! The Rose to Toads event raises money to improve trails in and around Lake Tahoe. This 62-mile mountain bike ride, with 8,000 vertical feet of climbing, and 10,000 vertical feet of descent, has become a signature mountain biking event in Lake Tahoe. This ride is not a race and we educate all riders on being positive ambassadors of the mountain bike community while showcasing some of the best trails from the North Shore to South Lake.

We want to extend a special thanks the LTBMU Forest Service for their cooperation in permitting this event. Through our permit, we plan on continuing to hold this ride each year in September.

Thanks to Sports LTD, Tahoe Rim Trail Association, Barton Health, Over the Edge Sports, and Outdoor GearLab. Thanks for making this ride extra-special for all of the riders. You assisted in creating an event of a lifetime for many of these riders. A big thank you to Flume Trail Bikes and Over the Edge for waking up early and driving riders to the trailhead.

We are also thankful for the donations of products from Tahoe Trail Bar and Pickle Juice Sports. Your products helped power riders through their day.

Our biggest thank you is to the TAMBA volunteers, Forest Service, and Tahoe Rim Trail Association for creating and maintaining Tahoe’s amazing trail network. We are so fortunate to have one of the most spectacular trail networks in the country. Keep up the good work!
