Join us on Saturday, June 13th (7:00am) at the main Genser Trailhead for a social ride at Starr Pass.
We have been working hard with Pima County to lay out more than five miles of new singletrack that we hope to start building in the fall. On the ride we will show folks some of the proposed corridor and answer questions about proposed trail closures in the future.
We will ride the “regular loop” including the Yetman reroute, with more miles if folks are interested. Mellow pace, no one gets dropped.

Email firstname.lastname@example.org or go to the Facebook event page with questions or to let us know you’re coming out.
The public is invited to a informational meeting regarding the sale of land owned by the City of Tucson, which includes our beloved Fantasy Island. Local cycling clubs have been working with the City to preserve as much of Fantasy Island as possible.

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 email@example.com.
Wow, what a great turnout we had for the February 22nd Sweetwater trail day! Thanks to everyone who came out and helped rough in the new section of trail that is due to be completed this year. Keep an eye out for upcoming work days.
Make sure to take a moment and check out the new Sweetwater trail system map, as well as photos from the work day.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org so we can make sure to have a lunch for you.
If the weather is bad, check Facebook or TucsonMTB.com for updates.
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!
We had a fantastic turnout on Sunday as SDMB helped Pima County finish up the last bit of trail in the Sweetwater trail system. Thanks to everyone who came out, and to Beyond Bread for providing the amazing volunteer lunches.
Check out the Photos from the Event, and don’t forget about the upcoming Trail Day on December 13th (details to come).
We had a fantastic turnout for our September Trail Day, where we worked on our adopted trail, Bug Springs. Being one of our favorite trails, as well as it had taken quite a beating from our summer monsoon storms, it was in rough shape. We hiked up to the Hoodoos and worked our way back down, rebuilding corners, filling in the ruts, and finishing the tread.
