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.

Trail Love – Sweetwater – Feb 22

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.

SDMB Pint Night at Borderlands Brewery

SDMB Pint Night

SDMB is at it again, this time raising funds for tools, supplies, lunches, to help build new trail in Tucson Mountain Park.

Come on out November 12 from 6-10 to try new Borderlands’ brews, enjoy live music, and snack at the food trucks. $20 gets you in the door with two drinks and a special run pint glass! Additional drinks are $5 with half coming back to SDMB to fund projects directly.

To piggy back on the success of the Yetman re-route and to further our mission to help make Tucson a destination mountain bike city, we’ve worked with Pima County Parks, with public input over the last year, to develop a plan to add a 6-8 mile loop around the TMP basin. Stop by to chat us up and mingle with the MTB community.

The all volunteer project will begin in January, come on out to help and/or you can make a donation directly to the project.

See the Pint Night Facebook event.

As always, thank for the support!
