Henry O'Donnell and Greg Williams of Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship - The Inside Line 1

Where did Henry O'Donnell go? Find out and learn about the massive trail projects taking place in Northern California thanks to Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship.

Welcome Mountain bikers, thanks for listening to Vital MTB’s The Inside Line Podcast. We have a double-dipper of a treat today. We wax nostalgic and catch up with Henry O’Donnell, one of the original Santa Cruz Syndicate racers. He grew up in Downieville and found mountain bike success with help from Greg Williams, the main man behind the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship, who’s also on the show. We touch on Henry’s race career, why he just seemed to vanish from racing, and then get into some history of the Stewardship and what they’re doing in the Sierra Nevadas with some massive trail-building projects that connect various mountain towns in the region.

Henry, Greg, thank you for your time and listeners, as always, thank you for taking the time to hear us talk about mountain biking! Hope you’re staying safe and getting some quality ride time in!
