South Lake Tahoe Bike Rentals

You’re in the mountains, now you need a bike. Whether you are heading to one of Lake Tahoe’s pristine beaches, around town, or out on the trail, a South Lake Tahoe bike rental is a must for those that want to spend less time in traffic and more time experiencing the great outdoors. 

Anderson’s Bike Rentals starts at the beginning of the Camp Richardson Bike Path. There are miles of safe, paved trails perfect for the family of all ages to take at their own pace.

The path is dotted with small beaches that offer panoramic views of the lake and surrounding mountains. Ride the bike path into Camp Richardson and stop at The Beacon for the best calamari and Rum Runners in town or treat the kids to their daily vacation ice cream cone at the Camp Richardson Ice Cream Parlor.

For the road or mountain biking enthusiast, we recommend South Shore Bikes. Hec and his staff at South Shore Bikes can set you up with road, mountain, or downhill bikes by the hour or day.

If you need a bunch of bikes for multiple family members, they also rent beach cruisers and stock a well-rounded supply of road and mountain bike parts.

Shoreline of Tahoe has all the rental gear you need including kid’s bikes, comfort hybrid bikes, cruiser bikes, mountain bikes, demo bikes, kids trailers, and more.

They also offer mountain bike shuttles for $15.00 a day, so check them out and put driving off for another day.
