Mountain Bikers Get Recognition from Pima County Board of Supervisors
Yesterday SDMB and our volunteers were recognized by the Pima County Board of Supervisors as part of Pima County Volunteer Appreciation Week. We can’t say it enough- huge, huge thanks to the hundreds of volunteers who help build and maintain trails in Pima County!
Upcoming Starr Pass Build Days
Summer is coming, and we have more trail to build at Starr Pass! 3 more Build Days should do it… All remaining build days meet at the Genser TH and run from 7:00 – 11:30 AM. No experience is needed! SDMB provides tools, lunch, and refreshments. Volunteers need to bring work gloves, water/snacks, long pants, closed-toe shoes, and sun protection. Follow the links below to sign up:

McKenzie Ranch Update
After months of negotiation with the Arizona State Land Department, Pima County has finally acquired the Right of Way for the access road to McKenzie Ranch and we are one step closer to breaking ground! Pima County is getting ready to blade the parking lot and install the fencing, then we will begin construction of Pima County’s first-ever XC race venue. Stay tuned in the next few months for more details!
100-Acre Wood Update
Progress continues on 100-Acre Wood Bike Park! The City of Tucson is working on site cleanup, and SDMB has contracted with Hilride Progression Development to design 4-6 miles of MTB-specific singletrack in May. We expect to start construction in the Fall.
