TAMBA hosts 5th trail building day
Mountain biking enthusiasts are invited to join Tahoe Area Mountain Biking Association (TAMBA) for its next trail building day.
TAMBA is conducting its fifth Kingsbury Stinger Trail Day, dedicated to volunteers helping build the new trail in conjunction with the U.S. Forest Service.
“We first walked this new alignment with the Forest Service five years ago and it’s exciting to see it finally being built,” states the TAMBA website.
Recommended attire includes sturdy shoes, long pants and long sleeves. Helmets are required. Bring your bike to test ride the trail after spending the day working.
“Join us on [select] days to help build the new trail and for your opportunity to check out what’s been built so far,” according to the site.
Tools are provided at the site, as well as free snacks from Tahoe Trail Bar and a lunch barbecue including cold drinks.
To participate, meet at 9 a.m. at the end of North Benjamin / Andria Drive near the Tahoe Rim Trail: Kingsbury North Trailhead for each trail day. There is a 3/4-mile walk or ride to the work area.
Everyone who volunteers is entered to win a new bike from Norco and Shoreline Tahoe, according to TAMBA’s Facebook page.
The final three building days will be held on Aug. 26, Sept. 21 and Oct. 9.
“We’re getting towards the home stretch,” states the Kingsbury Stinger Trail Day Facebook event page.
