Monday June 4 to Friday June 15 is the Tahoe Bike Challenge.
The 7th annual Tahoe Bike Challenge is promoting bicycling as an alternative transportation choice over the automobile. This is not a competition but rather an invitation to join hundreds of Tahoe bicyclists in riding your bike to work, school or play. The Challenge can be a personal one in which riding a bike for the very first time is your challenge or it can be a team effort to see how many trips made and miles accumulated during the event. You define your own Challenge and have fun doing it.
Tahoe Bike Challenge Sets New Goals For 2012, new goals have been set to increase participation and results.

Everyone is invited to participate in this free cruising event from Miller’s Outpost at the “Y” in South Lake Tahoe, CA, to MontBleu Resort Casino and Spa at Stateline, NV. Don’t worry… two states, but only five (flat) miles.

Oh, it’s on. You’ll get a number. You’ll be counted. And we all just want to count, right? Guinness, the World Record people not the beer, will certify the numbers and we’ll make history… in a good way. Pre-register at Tahoe Sports Ltd.
