Explore the southern shore of Lake Tahoe by bike — the perfect mode of transport that allows you to see more than you would on foot but still enjoy the fresh air and stunning views. With a 4- or 8-hour bike rental, you can easily zip around town, find your favorite beach, discover picturesque locations like Emerald Bay or go looking for adventure on steep dirt trails. Choose from four bike options that suit all needs, whether you want to cruise, fly down the mountain or cart around little ones.
Your Tahoe bike rental starts at the local rental office in South Lake Tahoe. After some instruction and safety guidelines for biking around the lake, take a look at your map (yours to keep), hop on your bike and set off with your friends or family!You have four or eight hours of rental time, depending on the option you select when booking. You also have a choice of four bike styles: a cruiser (great for beach-hopping and bike paths), a mountain bike (choose if you plan to explore the mountains on single tracks and downhill trails), a tandem bike (the romantic option!) or a bike with a kid-carrier (perfect if you have a small child not ready for his or her own bike).Pedal around the lake at your leisure, checking out the many beaches and other sites that line the southern shore, such as Nevada Beach, Lakeside, Ski Run, Timber Cove, the Tahoe Keys and Pope. If you’re up for it, you can even bike all the way to Emerald Bay, one of Tahoe’s most popular and beautiful destinations. Perhaps visit a lakeside restaurant for lunch, and then bike off your meal. Or head to Van Sickle trail, which winds through Heavenly Mountain Resort.Whether you’re looking for a flat, mellow route or a steep, rocky adventure, the options are endless, and you’re in control. When your time is up, just return your bike to the rental office.
