Wow, this late in the season, Hole in the Ground mountain bike trail on Donner Pass I-80 at Boreal is finally open.  You still have to jump a couple of snow drifts on the back side, but it is open and mostly rideable.  All other trails in the Reno – Tahoe area are clear with no controls.  Get in  – Get out – Go RIDE!  And be safe.

This weekend I will be participating in Mountain Bike Nevada.  We are leaving Cal-Neva North Lake Tahoe, and ending up in Utah near Ely, Nevada in 11 days.  Sept 10 – 20th.  The shop will be operating normal business hours, but I will not be there.  I will be posting pics and GPS Spot locations throughout the ride on my FaceBook Page.  Find me to follow this first year epic ride.  11 days, and 500 miles of dirt roads across the middle of Nevada.  For more information on this ride, go to
