About the Tour
Most everyone knows Lake Tahoe, but very few people have ridden around the lake or the surrounding area. Drive up on Friday and get settled for the weekend. On Saturday, we go around Lake Tahoe on the classic clockwise loop. On day 2, we go from Incline Village to Truckee for brunch before we return to the cabin to pack up and get back to the bay area

It includes a challenging 800 foot climb to a rest stop overlooking Emerald Bay and a 1,000 foot climb to Spooner Junction. There are also many short rolling ascents and descents totaling over 4,000 vertical feet of elevation gain!

Another classic loop from Incline Village to Truckee and then Hwy 89 to Tahoe City for an early lunch.
