New for 2018
Book a demo bike and a shuttle all at the same time. Courtesy of Tahoe Mountain Guides, Cycle Paths is offering 3 shuttle options to enhance your Truckee Tahoe mountain biking experience:
1/ DRT (booking code for Donner Rim Trail): this drop-off and pickup style shuttle takes you to one of the coolest high country trails around. Ride time: 1 1/2- 2 hours; Ability Level: strong intermediate. Start your ride at 7300', with a mellow climb, to flowy singletack, to techie granite slabs and rock features, to a cruising wide-open descent, finishing with a tighter windy rolling downhill; this ride has it all. To extend the ride time, you can add a 30 min. climb at the beginning of the ride up to a hanging saddle, where you will be rewarded with spectacular views, and an awesome descent back down to where you can then connect to DRT and continue your ride. Total ride time is bumped up an additonal hour. Cost: Add DRT to your demo bike booking for $25.
2/ TTSD (booking code for Tahoe-Truckee Super D): this drop-off only shuttle starts you off on a mellow section of the Tahoe Rim Trail with a rolling traverse to a flowy downhill trail, and on to a mix of rocky singletrack descents mixed with a couple of fireroad connectors, culminating onto the Sawtooth Ridge Trail and onto Happy Face, where you will come off the dirt and into the Sierra Meadows neighborhood with quick paved descent into downtown Truckee. You can then pick up a paved bike path that brings you under the freeway and right up the hill and back up to the shop. Ride time: 2 1/2 hours. Ability Level: intermediate. Cost: add TTSD to your demo bike booking for $25.
3/ TRT+ (booking code for Tahoe Rim Trail + Tahoe- Truckee Super D): this drop-off only shuttle starts you off on the Tahoe Rim Trail near Brockway Summit, where you ride west on the TRT to the connector of the Tahoe- Truckee Super D. Ride time: 4 hours. Ability level; fit intermediate to advanced. Highlights include an immediate breathtaking view of Lake Tahoe and the mountains to the south and west, with an awesome but somewhat rocky descent section of the Tahoe Rim Trail right out of the van; then a moderately difficult climb back up to the ridge and a rolling traverse that affords more epic views of Tahoe. You then connect into the TTSD and are on your way north and back towards Truckee. Cost: add TRT+ to your demo bike booking for $20.
