This Saturday, June 3rd is National Trails Day. It s a great opportunity to give back to those trails that give us so much. As a small, independent company, our philanthropy often involves getting our hands dirty. Especially when it's about something we use everyday.
We recently got a crew of volunteers together and worked with the Tahoe Area Mountain Bike Association, or TAMBA, to conduct trail work on a popular section of the Tahoe Rim Trail near the north shore of Lake Tahoe.https://vimeo.com/208495822
There s something about a trail leading into the woods. You just want to follow it, see where it goes. See what adventures lie around the next curve. And magical things happen when you do.
You watch the sunlight flicker through the trees, you have a real, uninterrupted conversation with a friend, you stand atop a peak and feel like there s nothing in the world you can t accomplish.
"I got involved with doing trail maintenance because I got tired of asking who was going to take care of it"
The trail becomes our fall line in the summer months. We replace a smooth turn down a powder glade with the flow of a good stretch of single track. There seems to be a National Day for everything now, from National Ice Cream Day to National Harvey Wallbanger Day. But, this Saturday is a great excuse to celebrate trails of all kind and trail recreation of all manners running, biking, hiking. It s a day to enjoy trail running outside with friends, soaring over rolling singletrack on your mountain bike, or just walking the dog on that trail behind your house.
It s not only about taking care of our environment, but it s about giving back to our community, says Flylow co-founder and president Dan Abrams. Trail work gives us a chance to get down in the dirt and do something with our hands that ll make a positive impact on the lives of people recreating here.
Our employees live and work in Tahoe, Park City, Jackson, Marin, and Colorado. Supporting the places we play is important to us and brings us closer to the communities we call home. So this is our reminder to you: Get out there and enjoy a trail this weekend and every day you can. There is likely an event happening in your town this Saturday. Just Google National Trails Day (Your Town) and go get your hands dirty. As an added bonus, the lunch is usually free.
