Helping Tahoe Be More Livable & SustainableTahoe Bike

Lake Tahoe is one of the most beautiful places on the planet. Its crystal clear waters, majestic mountain peaks, and vibrant flora and fauna have drawn people here for hundreds of years.

The Lake Tahoe Bicycle Coalition envisions a community that models wisdom, connectivity and responsiveness to its residents, economy and ecosystem, and embodies the leadership needed to balance and sustain these essential elements over time.

The Coalition’s mission is to promote liveable and sustainable communities by encouraging more bicycle/pedestrian-friendly facilities and promoting educational programs in which residents and visitors can safely and conveniently ride and walk on a more frequent basis.

Nominations for Bicycle Achievement Awards

Each year, the Lake Tahoe Bicycle Coalition (LTBC) honors those that have made significant advancements to helping Tahoe become more bicycle-friendly. The categories are:

  • Individual
  • Business
  • Organization
  • Agency.

Last year a special Lake Tahoe Service Award was given. To submit a nomination, send an e-mail to membership@tahoebike.org that includes your name and contact information, your nomination(s) with a brief description. You may submit a nomination for as many of the categories as you want. The Award Recipients will be announced at the Celebration Event of this year’s 9th Annual Lake Tahoe Challenge. The date, location and time for the Celebration Event will be announced at a later time. Deadline to submit nominations is Monday 5/5/14.

The Tahoe Bike Challenge is presented by the Lake Tahoe Bicycle Coalition, Tahoe Metropolitan Planning Organization, and Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, as well as additional businesses and organizations. The Challenge takes place June 7-20, 2014. Visit www.tahoebikechallenge.org or follow us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/TahoeBikeChallenge.

Tahoe Bike Path Cleanup Day

Help us kick off the 2014 Tahoe Bike Challenge with a bike path cleanup on Saturday, June 7th from 10am-noon.

We’ll be working at three locations throughout South Lake Tahoe (see map here) to pick up litter and pull invasive weeds from the areas around our bike paths.  Then we’ll all meet up at the League to Save Lake Tahoe office for a free lunch and celebration!  Plus, everyone that rides their bike to the event will receive a raffle ticket.  Raffle prizes TBA.

To sign up, fill out the form here. When filling out the form, you can select which location you’d like to join.  Thanks for helping out!

Bikeway Segments Scheduled for Summer 2014

Some important gaps in the Bikeway network are scheduled to be constructed in Summer 2014. These include the infamous "Homewood Hole" (a mile-long gap in the shared-use path along Westshore), the Lake Tahoe Blvd & Sawmill bike trails in El Dorado County, and the Harrison Avenue/Riverside Rd. bike trail in South Lake Tahoe. Look for smoother, more connected rides at Lake Tahoe this summer and fall.
