TRT and Flume here we come...
Hey everyone, it's on! We're going to Tahoe in June (of course the date is subject to change this early out) However I will let everyone know way in advance if/when it does change.
The plan for now is to meet in San Jose for carpools up to the Spooner Lake area of Nevada, near Lake Tahoe. From there we'll shuttle to the top of Mt. Rose ($20.00 per person) and ride down from there. This ride is long and at elevation so make sure you're putting in your base work now if you intend to join us. Unfortunately due to the length and nature of this ride I will be restricting this ride to experience (Intermediate/Advanced) riders only. The trails are a wide mix of many different terrain and should offer something for everyone that joins us.
This will be my first time to Tahoe so I'm super stoked, of course that means I'm also clueless as to what to expect. All I can say is that you should all expect one hell of an Awesome time! It's going to be a day trip so pack accordingly, spare clothes extra food etc. We'll eat and rest a little at the end of the day before heading back so we'll be home rather late for a mountain bike ride.
More information, including a map of the route I'm planning and some elevation profiles etc. will be up soon.
Bike Rental Info-In case you want to try something new while you're up there.
