Recommended bike


This ride is 14-miles one way and is for experienced riders. It includes over 1000 ft of climbing, so biking and especially mountain biking/ single track experience is required.

Yes a morning shuttle will take you to the top at Spooner Lake Park and then you need only ride back down.

Yes, a morning shuttle can also take you to Tahoe Rim Trail where you can ride anywhere from 15-40 miles including back to the bottom!

The bikes come with flats, we can sometimes change to your pedals if needed (you will need to supply the shoes!)

The mornings are very cold and a wind jacket is good to have for the start of the ride.

Our E bikes are for recreation; we only recommend using a mountain bike on these single track trails.
