    SMBA has been working with the Park Planners to include provisions in the Draft Master Plan to build a MTB skills park and improve mountain biking within Thacher State Park. It is critical that everyone comes out and attends the public hearing on August 1st so we can voice our support for these efforts, because you can be sure there will be people there against it!
