Bicycling in Tahoe is a beautiful, exciting and intimate experience for many who live and visit here. The area’s eco-system of majestic mountain vistas, crystalline waterways, abundant forests, thriving wildlife and hundreds of miles of bike trails are equally matched with a community filled with creative residents, events, a rich historical heritage, and a diverse offering of entertainment, lodging and shopping — all to be experienced from a bicycle.

Writers contributing their story to the “collection” will share with others how bicycling in Tahoe inspires, moves, and excites them. These shared thoughts and experiences can help give vibrancy, meaning and identity to the community’s character that may well inspire others to ride a bicycle in Tahoe.
