Lake Tahoe
« on: July 01, 2008, 03:27:18 PM »
Hi,
Barbie, here from S. Fla/Hollywood, we are SWAMP long distance members  :'(
I know the club has been to Lake Tahoe, so I am looking for input and
experince/suggestions..

I am doing the TAHOE SIERRA 100 Sept 6th..
http://globalbiorhythmevents.com/index.php
Will be getting to SQUAW VALLEY (North side of Lake Tahoe) on August 31

ANy ideas for 2-3 hour rides?
Want to go out and do 2 or 3 hard/ short workouts that week only..
Don't want to do EPIC until the race day..

Thanks in advance,
Barbie

There are so many great rides around there, but my favorites are Tahoe Rim, Northstar(if you are DH friendly) and Downieville.  Honestly, it is hard to go wrong out there.

Downieville (17 mile down hill) is a must do and so is South Yuba river. Tahoe is beautiful but you will be sorry you missed  Downieville if you don't do it. Julianne and I have been there three times so far.

I was there as a youngster and have wanted to go back ever since. Especially since I started riding.
My bike is more than a toy; it's my vessel.

Excellent, and thanks for the INPUT..  :)

Have checked out all the suggestions and will definetely do some of them..
DOWNIEVILLE..
Is it all downhill riding? If so, eh..not my thing (yet)..
Soo many choices so little time  :o

See you around the campfire at FTF, looking forward to it!!
Last year didn't make it cause was still rehabing ROTATOR Cuff surgery..

thanks again for your posts!

There is a lot more climbing in Downieville than Tahoe. If you want a really nice ride with more climbing than downhill and really senic, do the South Yuba River trail. There is a BEAUTIFUL swimming hole about half way thru the ride that is just awesome.
