All Day Event

October 2 @ 6:54 am

The 29th annual “America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride – Lake Tahoe” returns after a two-year hiatus, welcome over 3,000 bicyclists from throughout the country to ride around Lake Tahoe’s 72-mile shoreline.

This pleasant ride is not a competition, but rather a fully supported bike tour that raises awareness for the Lake Tahoe Bikeway project, a master plan to build and connect all of the bike lanes surrounding  Lake Tahoe, and supports the Lake Tahoe Bicycle Coalition’s annual Bike Safe Lake Tahoe campaign.

The journey features breathtaking scenery, clean mountain air, and rest stops with delicious food and beverages, all of which are staffed by volunteers from local NGOs. It is professionally run by ride organizers with decades of experience in the Lake Tahoe area.
