Tour De Tahoe
Sunday September 12, 2021
Lake Tahoe -- Big Blue, as it is referred to by many -- is North America’s Largest Alpine Lake and the Jewel of the High Sierra ... and the Reno Tahoe Territory of the Nevada Commission on Tourism and Bike the West invites you to experience the adventure of riding your bicycle around her 72-mile shoreline by participating in the Annual Tour de Tahoe – Bike Big Blue. Bike the West has been producing America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride – Lake Tahoe for the past 25+ years and has gained a reputation as being one of best Spring rides in the country. It continues to sell out year after year leaving many riders not able to participate. This is your chance to ride around Lake Tahoe at Summer’s end offering fresh mountain air, incredible scenic beauty, great food & entertainment and managed and supported by one of the most experienced bicycle event management teams in the West.
Bike the West & Tour de Tahoe Bike Big Blue continues to promote the Lake Tahoe Bikeway, in conjunction with the Lake Tahoe Bicycle Coalition. Dedicated to enhance bicycling safety, facilities and to promote the building and connecting existing bike lanes around Lake Tahoe and to develop an alternative non-motorized transportation corridor to help protect Lake Tahoe’s environment. If you enjoy riding your bike around Lake Tahoe, please help us to continue our work by joining and supporting this vision. Click on the Logo for information and membership.

monitoring the COVID-19 situation and hope to produce events in 2021, though there are still
many unknowns for us to navigate through to produce our rides in two states and several county /
