|Riders near Brockway Summit.|
Cyclists have two organized rides along the shore of Lake Tahoe this month. The first ride coming up is the Tahoe Sierra Century which begins and ends at Squaw Valley. The second event is the Tahoe Bike Classic. This event is a race around Lake Tahoe, starting and ending at Zephyr Cove Resort.
The Tahoe Sierra Century is September 13, 2014. The event has a 30, 60, and 100 mile course. I always enjoy the 100 mile course which travels along Lake Tahoe from Tahoe City to Kings Beach, over Brockway Summit to Truckee, over Donner Summit to Cisco Grove and back to Squaw Valley.
The aid stations are well stocked with food, water, and helpful volunteers. The main aid station at Donner Lake is used by all three course riders. For rider safety, the road (Old Route 40) up over Donner Summit from Donner Lake will be closed to traffic.
