Description: This rides starts at the California-Navada line on the south side of the lake. It then heads clockwise around the lake back to the starting point.
Comments: The ride includes breathtaking scenery, challenging climbs and long down hill runs. I suggest that it's best taken on as part of a group ride such as the Tour de Tahoe put together by Bike The West. There can be a lot of traffic on the narrow road that often lacks any shoulder and has many steep drop offs. Few rides offer this kind of scenary. It can be pretty chilly early in the morning, so you may want to dress warmly and carry something to shed layers as you progress.
