Dear Fellow Mountain Biker,

We are the Bicycle Trails Council of Marin (BTC), and we are responsible for
almost all the bike legal singletrack in Marin County.

Yes, the Tamarancho Bike Loop, was built by bicyclists, under BTC's
direction, during a 6 year period, from 1995 to 2000. And each winter we
continue to maintain and improve Tamarancho's trail system.

BTC also is involved in both building and maintaining bike legal trails in:
¨ China Camp State Park
¨ The Marin Headlands (Green Gulch Trail)
¨ Big Rock Ridge (Big Rock Ridge Trail)

In addition, many of the fireroads in Marin are open due to our past
lobbying efforts. In fact, almost anywhere you ride legally in Marin is due
to BTC's advocacy for more access for bikes.

Now is the time to show your support, for all that we have achieved. But
even more importantly, we need your help to effectively continue this work.

Join BTC today, and improve your riding opportunities tomorrow.

Print out an application at: www.btcmarin.org or send your snail mail
address to: [email protected] and you will be sent a membership application.
