STATELINE, Nev. (AP) - Bicycling enthusiasts can hit the trail this fall for a three-day mountain biking conference at Lake Tahoe.
The International Mountain Bicycling Association and the U.S. Forest Service are co-hosting the Tahoe Trails Conference beginning Oct. 1 at MontBleu hotel-casino in Stateline.
The event is open to all members of the mountain bike community. Sponsors say it is an opportunity for collaboration between the divergent interests of riders, land managers and the bike industry.
Association President Tom Ward says the conference comes at a time that is "a critical juncture for relations between people who are passionate about riding their mountain bikes in the forest, and those charged with protecting the incredible resources in the Lake Tahoe basin."
