NEW BEGINNER-FRIENDLY XC TRAIL PLANNED AT PAJARITO MOUNTAIN
Ryan Schutz, The Rocky Mountain Regional Director for the International Moutnain Bike Association (IMBA) arrived for several days in Late May to meet the Board of the newly formed, local IMBA chapter, Los Alamos Singletrack Association (LASA), as well as Tom Long, GM of Pajarito Mountain Ski Area. Ryan worked with LASA members Peter Dickson, Craig Martin, and Gary Parker to design a new and easier mountain bike trail up Pajarito Mountain that will complement the existing network of intermediate and expert trails. LASA/IMBA members, Tuff Riders and other volunteers are getting ready to start construction, but we need your help since building a trail that is accessible to all levels of riders requires a significant amount of effort.
