MTB Tahoe North - August 15th-18th
Join us for a fun-filled long weekend of camping, riding and trail work at Donner Lake, just north of Lake Tahoe. We’ll be camping from Thursday afternoon August 15th through Sunday August 18th.
We’ll have intermediate and advanced group rides Thursday eve, Friday, and Sunday, on trails above Donner Lake and Lake Tahoe. Saturday morning and early afternoon we'll be working on our beloved Hole in the Ground trail! (Additional land was recently purchased nearby - in future years we hope to help build the rest of the loop on dirt!)
We’ve reserved great campsites at Donner Lake Memorial State Park. Swimming, kayaking, hiking, climbing, and road biking are popular activities near camp.

Thanks Mr. G. - and special thanks for arranging post-trailwork beer for us!
Anyone in northern Cal who's interested but doesn't have a local contact, PM me for more info. Space is limited, but some groups still have room.
Thanks also to REI, Tahoe Dave's, and Clif for supporting this event!
I want to emphasize that this is a GREAT event, super fun people, great riding with a bit of rewarding volunteering. I can't wait. Join us for the fun!
If you need a club contact, please me or Grace know.
Is there a meeting time and place for trail work and rides? I want to help but live too close to camp.
See you all there!
I may even stand there leaning against a Mcleod pretending like I'm working!
HP, drop me a PM and I can provide details. We may publish these soon anyway.
@HP: absolutely! We have a max # for the work day but there's still room - pm me and I'll sign you up and get the info to you.
Hi all, there is a max number of participants (yes, even for trailwork), so please be sure to RSVP. Thanks!
+ local day
btw there's also a local work day on HiTG the very next day (Sunday 8/18th), hosted by the Truckee Trails Foundation - scheduled back-to-back to leverage bringing tools in to the site, etc.
See <a href=http://truckeetrails.org/sign-up-now-hole-in-the-ground-volunteer-trail-crew-sunday-august-18/>TTF info page</a> for more info and to sign up. You can also PM me for more info, or contact truckeetrailsfoundation at gmail.com.
