March 20 — The Susanville Area Bicycle Association loves trails. It’s a love visible on many local trails, which are used, groomed and built with the help of the dedicated group of cyclists.

On Saturday, March 8, SABA club members spent the morning showing love for a new section at Susanville Ranch Park. The group built a new section of trail near the upper loop of a trail currently referred to as the “Lazy Lizard Trail.” The section is on the Bureau of Land Management’s property and was flagged by SABA President Brian Tilford and BLM trail manager Stan Bales as having potential to be a new trail.


Thirteen SABA members and two children showed up to make the idea for the new trail a reality. After a brief trail-building instruction session given by Tilford, the group completed a 150-yard section of trail in about two hours. The team used trail-building practices used by the International Mountain Bicycling  Association for trails that drain and require minimal maintenance.
