WELCOME TO SDMB

Thanks for visiting the Sonoran Desert Mountain Bicyclists! We are an all-volunteer 501c3 non-profit organization devoted to the promotion of mountain biking, and view the sport as a vehicle to promote low impact outdoor recreation, conservation, and opportunities that are environmentally and socially responsible. We hope that you will use this website as your Tucson mountain biking resource for finding events and trails to ride, as well as to stay up-to-date and help our trail advocacy efforts.

April Trail Love: Bug Springs!

Bug Springs Trail Day

Join SDMB for our April Trail Love Corps day, Saturday April 18. In our continuing stewardship of Bug Spring trail, we will be working on the middle section between the creek valley and the hoodoos. We will be doing erosion control, improving corners, and improving flow along the entire trail corridor. The upper and lower parts of Bugs are in great shape; let’s get the middle part in equally great shape!

We will be shuttling up to the top of Bugs and working our way down. We will likely be out past lunch, so bring a lunch and/or snacks for the day. SDMB will bring beverages for the post-work festivities.

Meet at Le Buzz at 7:30 AM, and plan on working into the afternoon. We will bring the tools, you bring work gloves, water, lunch/snacks, and good footwear/clothing for the day.

RSVP on the Facebook Event or email trailsteward@sdmb.org.

24 HOURS IN THE OLD PUEBLO!!!

24HOP-devonBalet

The popularity of Epic Rides‘ signature event is increasing faster than mountain bike wheel sizes! And SDMB is incredibly excited to be a part of this fantastic event. We invite you to stop by SDMB-Town (on the right just before you enter 24-Town proper) and say “Hi!” Sample some great Catalina Brewing Company beer while you’re there.

Please visit our official SDMB booth in “town” and take a look at the new SDMB shirts, socks and other schwag, and don’t forget to pick up a complimentary cho-comb. What could be better than that? How about some amazing Sierra Nevada beer? Proceeds from all the SDMB Beer Garden sales goes directly into maintaining Tucson’s trails through our Trail Love program. Beer Garden hours are: 2-8 Fri, 11-9 Sat, 10-2 Sun.

See you there!

Trail Love – Sweetwater – Feb 22

sweetwater-work

Come out for the February SDMB Trail Love Corps Day, on February 22nd. We will continue to build singletrack at Sweetwater, this time to complete the last mile of a loop in the new parcel. As there is limited parking at the work site, we will be carpooling.

Meet at the corner of Silverbell and Sweetwater (near the PACC) at 8:00 AM. Look for the SDMB flag!

Bring work gloves, water, and snacks. We will work until noon, then lunch from Beyond Bread and beverages will be provided by SDMB.

Please RSVP to trailsteward@sdmb.org so we can make sure to have a lunch for you.

If the weather is bad, check Facebook or TucsonMTB.com for updates.

24 Hours in the Old Pueblo – Sierra Nevada Beer Garden

Sierra-Nevada-Banner

SDMB has an exciting opportunity at the 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo this year, running from Friday, February 13 through Sunday, February 15. We will be running the Sierra Nevada Beer Garden in 24 Hour Town!

This will raise significant funds for trail development in Tucson, but we need your volunteer help. The beer garden will be open on Friday from 2:00 PM – 8:00 PM, on Saturday from 11:00 AM – 9:00 PM, and on Sunday from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM. Shifts are only 2 hours, and are guaranteed to be a good time. All proceeds go directly to support upcoming trail projects in the Tucson area, including new singletrack in Tucson Mountain Park and the 100-Acre Wood Bike Park.

As a bonus for anyone who volunteers, folks who come out for a 2-hour shift will get a free SDMB pint glass, and anyone who comes out for 2 or more 2-hour shifts will get a pint glass and a pair of SDMB socks. Pretty cool, huh?

To sign up for shifts, go to the Doodle link below. Make sure to let your friends and family members who will be at the race know, and forward the link to anyone you think might like to volunteer. Email Trailsteward@sdmb.org with any questions.

Even if you can’t volunteer, come by, have a pint, and drink beer for trails! All proceeds go to SDMB to help make your trails better.

Pint Night Recap

SDMB Pint Night at Borderlands

Thanks to everyone who came out last week and Borderlands Brewing Co. Together we raised just over $1700 for the Tucson Mountain Park Improvement Project. 2.5 miles of new single track trail have been laid out already with another 1.5 for this segment from the 4 way to Goat HIll.

Your donations help get these projects done! Since we are an all volunteer organization, these funds will go directly toward providing lunches for volunteers (150(+/-) for the Yetman Bypass Project last year), replacing worn tools/gloves, and to help pay some portion of the Cultural and Biological surveys for Pima County.

Thanks! Hope to see you all in the Spring when we start construction!
