The Tour De Tahoe – Bike Big Blue is a 72 mile bike race that circumnavigates the highways clockwise around Lake Tahoe. This is not a race for the ill-prepared or amateurs who are not ready for the 1,000 ascent at Spooner Junction and the 800 foot climb overlooking Emerald Bay. Although the trip is arduous, bicycling the entire route will provide an experience full of stunning views around Lake Tahoe.
This year the event benefits Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation in their National Fundraising Program. It’s a great opportunity to ride to cure diabetes. For more information on joining their team, please visit www.ride.jdrf.org.
