    The Trails at Tamarancho - Who built them & how they did it - Wed June 13th

    The Story of the Tamarancho Bike Trails at Marin Museum of Bicycling
    Wednesday June 13 7:00-8:30PM (doors, taps 6:15)

    See & hear how the Tamarancho trails were designed and built by the people who made it all happen. The first purpose built single track loop in Marin was a personal vision. It was a dream that became a mission completed by a small core group, with the help of volunteers like you & me. 8 miles, 10 Bridges, 45 Switchbacks, 10,000 volunteer hours for original construction + another 10,000 for maintenance.

    The event will feature an illustrated discussion highlighting how the original plan came together, construction, the races, flow trail, Tamarancho history, and more.

    Were you there for the build? Then join us all for this one time event!

    Oh, and we'll be pouring killer beer On Tap -which you can begin enjoying at 6:15.

    This event may well sell out. Tickets available at the door, or in advance at:https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-bic...ts-46826094108

    Doors open at 6:15 for refreshments & snacks
    $10 Adults $5 Members/Students/Under 18

    Endor? I heard the alien buried in the B-17 wreckage regained consciousness 66.6 years later and built it.

    More better beer!

    Anticipating a thirsty crowd, I have secured extra beer. We will have fine (crowd pleaser) IPA, and a lighter pilsner or kolsch for session drinkers. Everything nice & cold and fresh on tap. This will be a popular -ONE TIME ONLY- event! Don't miss it!

    OT, but can anyone tell me the difference between the annual Tamarancho pass I usually buy and the Gold pass other than the color and an additional donation? Can't find the info on the website

    I'm not exactly sure, but the question can be answered at the event -or here if one of the cognoscenti chimes in.

    One thing I can say is that the passes are an important fundraising benefit to the scout camp. And the Gold Passes are a show of good will. They allowed us to build fabulous BIKE TRAILS on their property -in Marin, where restrictions abound. How much is that worth?

    Everybody who buys a gold pass is hero. Generosity rewards all. It's like tipping the waiter 25% rather than 15 -just for good will.

    That's right, sorry I forgot to mention.

    BTW - advance tkt sales are high as of now. This event will probably be packed. I suggest advance tkts, but even when that closes, we still save seating for walk-ins.

    See you there!

    There's an area inside by the water cooler, if you don't feel safe locking your bike out front.

    Easier to stash your bike inside if you arrive early

    Doors & beer at 6:15. Presentation at 7

    See you there!

    Def need a secure bike spot! Thanks for the info. It's maybe too late but can you get a bike valet or simply someone to simply watch a self-locked bike rack outside?

    No valets -every volunteer is full up with their jobs at the event. Perhaps YOU would volunteer as bike valet?

    There's room for a few bikes inside. It's never been an issue.

    Suggestions can be made to the full time staff after the event.

    Enjoy!
