2022 Event Prior Updates

Jan 1st, 2022

Dear Bike the West Registered Participants,

Happy New Year!

Bike the West is hoping to get back on track in 2022 with America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride on June 5 and Tour de Tahoe on September 11. We will also produce our 31st Annual OATBRAN Ride Across Nevada, September 25 – October 1, 2022.

We will be sending out an email in January to all pre-registered riders from our postponed events in 2020 and 2021. Please look for this email to confirm your participation to ride on June 5 or September 11. We need to determine the number of riders that will ride on June 5 to determine how many spaces may be available before we open online registration to new riders. Please note only the 72 mile and 100 mile ride options will be offered on June 5.

Thank you for your understanding during these difficult times… Unfortunately, if you can’t make either ride, there are no refunds or transfers to future events per your signed agreement on your event confirmation when you registered…

With the recent spike with covid, as we move into the new year, we are hesitant about opening online registration for June 5 until we feel more secured in the direction, mandates and restrictions that may be in place in next few months and don’t anticipate opening online registration until after March 1, 2022.

We look forward to you joining us at Lake Tahoe.
