2. Winter Trailwork at Tamarancho
 
Give back to the trails you love to ride.
 
The trails at Tamarancho were built over a 6 year period by local volunteet cyclists. The construction was paid for and coordinated by the Bicycle Trails Council of Marin (BTC), with president Jim Jacobsen supervising the project.
 
Each year since the construction BTC coordinates trailwork days to maintain and improve the trails. This involves improving drainage, cutting back foliage, removing invasive plants, building bypass trails and more.
 
No experience is necessary. This is your chance to help the best bike legal trail system in Marin. 
 
Dates: 
 
Saturday and Sundays, December 8 & 9, December 15 & 16, January 5 & 6, January 12 & 13, January 19 & 20 and January 26 & 27.
 
Time/Location: 

 

Saturday trailwork starts at 10am and meets in the center of camp.
 
Sunday trailwork starts at 9:30am and meets at the junction of Broken Dam and B-17 trails.

You can drive up to the center of camp or ride your bike. Give yourself ample time to get to meeting location.

Bring: Work clothes, sturdy shoes, gloves. We supply all tools, snacks and drinks. 

Rain: Steady rain cancels.

3. TAMARANCHO BIKE SHORTS

 

Tamarancho is open all year, in all weather. But in the winter, when the trails are very wet after a big storm, that is good time to ride other locations rather than the camp. We say, "When it rains, let it drain".

A couple of new "bypass" trails opened last year in Tamarancho. One is near the bottom of Serpentine, and goes around the Rock Face and the other is on Broken Dam, near the Big Bridge, and includes 2 switchbacks. Look for new additional bypass and stunts that will be added this winter.

The camp may have heavy bike use during prime time on the weekends. Please remember that the uphill riders have right of way, and always ride in control.



With the usual winter storms coming, there will be some down trees and limbs as well as other wind and water damage on the trails. Please let us know if you come across obstacles (and the location) so we can remove them. 

As always, we are interested in any comments or suggestions that riders have about the bike program at Tamarancho. Email: D4er@comcast.net
