Lake Tahoe, Advanced Pedal, Paddle Adventure

Lake Tahoe, Advanced Pedal, Paddle Adventure | undefined

Perfect for people looking for a challenging thrill, AMGA certified mountain guide Jim wants to lead you on this day long pedal and paddle adventure in beautiful Lake Tahoe.

Sierra Nevada (California)

1 Day

Apr - Aug




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.
