TAMBA Corral Trail mountain bike Night Ride rescheduled for Saturday
WHAT: 2015 TAMBA Corral Night Ride
WHEN: Saturday, Oct. 24, 5:30 p.m.
WHERE: Corral trailhead
COST: $20 per person
If you thought you missed the Tahoe Area Mountain Bike Association’s annual Corral Night Ride, think again. Due to rain last weekend the popular TAMBA event has been rescheduled for Saturday, Oct. 24.
“It was just dumping rain,” TAMBA president Ben Fish said of conditions over the weekend and the decision to cancel. “We had puddles that were two feet deep. We didn’t want to ruin the trail.”
While the ride was canceled, TAMBA volunteers joined forces with the California Conservation Corps — braving the rain and cold — for their scheduled trailwork session on Saturday, Oct. 17, on the Corral Trail — a popular route outside of South Lake Tahoe, near Meyers.
“We had 60 people in the rain working,” Fish said of the effort. “We got a lot done.”
Volunteers spent roughly four hours on a dreary Saturday smoothing out trail features and working on general maintenance.
“We were soaked to the core,” Fish said.
Earlier in the summer, TAMBA work crews added a number of jump features and banked turns to the lower portion of the network of trails in the area.
Saturday’s night ride on the Corral Trail will take place at the same times as scheduled the week before. Riders are encouraged to be at the base of the Trailhead at 5:30 p.m. to register. The ride will start around 6 p.m. Registration is $20; proceeds will go to future trail projects and equipment purchase.
Following the ride, TAMBA will host a Halloween-themed party in the trailhead parking lot.
“It’s the unofficial ending of the season,” Fish said of the celebration. “It’s just a good time.”
With recent trailwork and rain he added, “The trail conditions are going to be great now.”
TAMBA MEETING AND FUTURE TRAIL WORK
The mountain biking association will host their monthly meeting Wednesday, Oct. 21, at 6 p.m. in the Parasol building in Incline Village. Meetings are open to members and the public. TAMBA officials will discuss recent projects and upcoming trail plans. The organization will also host two additional trailwork days this week. On Wednesday, Oct. 21, volunteers will be working on a reroute of trail at Stanford Rock near Tahoe City. Crews will also be working on trail maintenance on Tyrolian Trail near Incline Village on Sunday, Oct. 25. Sunday’s trailwork will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Interested volunteers can find more information on the TAMBA website, http://www.tamba.org and on their Facebook page.
