Demo bikes are available by reservation 7-days a week, throughout the riding season. Trail conditions are totally weather dependent, so feel free to call us if you need an update. If you're not familiar with our trails, or need some special expertise, we recommend you contact
 Tahoe Mountain Guides. They offer a complete guiding and shuttle service. Please inquire at time of reservation or book a tour.

Bike rentals and demos start at $49/day for hardtails, $89/day for carbon full suspension, and $120/day for Downhill specific bikes. Please not that Cycle Paths does not allow any of our trail bikes to be ridden at NorthStar Bike Park.  NorthStar's Bike Park, though a fun place, is a DH specific bike park and only DH specific bikes should be ridden there. If you go, go on a DH bike with a full-face helmet and wear all your pads and protection. 

Call 530-582-1890 to check bike availability and to reserve a demo bike.


Bike Types

Fat Bikes

Best suited for snow packed trails, we feature the Rocky Mountain Blizzard. With super fat tires, multi gears and disc brakes, these bikes are the perfect way to get out and ride here in the winter months. There are a variety of machine groomed and people packed trails with close proximity to the shop. We do not offer online reservation on fat bikes, as the snow packed trails need to be in perfect shape and conditions can vary radically due to air temp  and snowfall. Please give us a call or send an email to bikes@cyclepaths.com for information on availability and trail conditions.

Fat bikes available for demo at $49 per day

Best suited for gravity riding like the Northstar Bike Park, or shuttling freeride trails. These 8” travel slacked-out bikes come equipped with standard heavy duty DH bike features such as dual crown forks, chain guide, coil-over rear suspension and 2 ply tires. These are the only bikes we demo that we allow to be taken to the Northstar bike park. If you are going Northstar, you need one of these bikes to fully enjoy your experience.

We recommend that you bring knee and elbow pads at the minimum. If you don’t have a Full Face helmet, we will loan you one at no charge with your DH demo. (Bikes to be included in this list are the Norco Aurum 6.2 and 6.3, the Norco Aurum 7.1, and the KHS 300 DH.)
