Type of Trip
Famous for its beautiful landscape, Lake Tahoe in the Sierra Nevada mountain range of California is a wonder to behold. However, beyond its beauty it is also home to one of the most scenic bike routes in the world, the Flume trail. This amazing trail runs along Lake Tahoe’s eastern shore, and is full of tremendous views of the stunning lake water below.
The altitude of the trail runs at a steady 2,316 metres above sea level. Thus amplifying the great views you will receive. It is also not that difficult to ride. As a result, it is very accessible to cyclists of every biking level.
What makes this day trip so exciting is that the biking portion is just the first part because when you near the end of the trail, you will then be transported down to the Sand Harbour State Park. Once you reach the park, we will stop for some lunch. Afterwards, you will get to have a great time on the beautiful water of Lake Tahoe on a paddle boat. Hence providing you with a relaxing conclusion to an amazing trip.
The fame that Lake Tahoe has attained is definitely well deserved. It is a stunning body of water, and offers the kind of natural scenery most people dream of. And on this trip, you will have the chance to enjoy that scenery from above on a bike, and on the water itself on a paddle boat. And because of the minimal difficulty level, this trip is open to just about anybody.
If that sounds like something you want to experience, all you have to do is send me a request.
I also offer a more challenging version of this pedal and paddle trip as well. On this trip, advanced cyclists will definitely experience a much greater thrill.

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.
