Thank you for your continued interest and support of Bike the West. We have been closely 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 / city jurisdictions.

America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride: Our 29th annual bike ride scheduled for Sunday June 6, 2021 will officially not take place as a 3000+ participant mass ride. We are currently evaluating other options for alternate Lake Tahoe cycling experiences this June and will issue another update no later than March 2021, should approvals be granted for other ride options. 

For over 25 years, Bike the West and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society have partnered together for America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride to deliver an experience unlike any other. In that time, nearly 27,000 riders have raised over $106 million for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) mission as part of the Team In Training program. 

Ride For A Future Without Cancer with Team In Training

During these unprecedented times, it is more critical than ever that we continue this legacy for LLS patients, survivors, caretakers and researchers. Bike the West is proud to partner with Team In Training to continue this tradition with a fully virtual experience for the 2021 America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride.  This year’s bike ride will take place across the United States with Team In Training.  You ride with the Team. Together from everywhere. Cancer patients need us more than ever, and we can’t stop moving now. Join Bike the West and Team In Training for this year’s 2021 Virtual America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride, powered by The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Any bike, any road. Your ride to cure blood cancers. To learn more about the virtual experience or join the team, click here. To learn more about The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, visit www.lls.org.
