Type of Trip
There are a number of different ways to enjoy Lake Tahoe. For some people, just being there, leisurely soaking in the scenery, while soaking in the beautiful blue water is enough. However, for those looking for a challenging and thrilling way to enjoy the area, this 1 day biking and paddling trip is for you.
Throughout the day, you will not only get to enjoy some truly spectacular views of Lake Tahoe, you will get to enjoy them while feeling the blood pump excitedly through your body!
The first part of this trip will involve downhill biking. Thus giving you the rush of racing downward at high speeds while feeling the wind blow hard against your face in a fruitless attempt to slow you down. There are a number of fabulous descents to choose from, and before the trip begins I will go over them with you, and let you choose which one you want to take on, based on your skill level and the degree of thrills you want to experience. After the descent, we will then pick you up and take you to the second part of the trip, which is paddle boarding downwind on Lake Tahoe’s glistening water. And finally, at the end of that experience, we will relax, eat lunch, and reflect on the adventure you have just had, while your heart finally begins to slow to a normal beat.
So send me a request, come to Lake Tahoe, marvel at the scenery, and let me guide you on a thrilling adventure involving high level biking and paddle boarding.
I can also lead you on this version of the same trip that is designed for people who want to enjoy it at a more casual, less challenging and less intense pace.

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
There are several comfortable accommodation options near Lake Tahoe that I would be happy to recommend to you.
Participants should bring proper mountain bike apparel, including shoes, proper swimming attire, and a towel and camera because the views really are incredible.
