Q: We're from Europe and like to discover some singletracks in California (this is one handy website!). We would like to ride a part of the Tahoe Rim trail... Impossible to bring our own gear from Europe (bikes and so...). Are there any recommendations to rent some quality MTB gear in the neighbourhood of Lake Tahoe? Thanks for the replies. Grtz, K. -Karolien Seameew
A: Truckee is about 30 minutes from Tahoe. The Back Country in Truckee has one of the largest selections of bikes that I have seen in the Tahoe basin. Friendly staff. While I've never rented from them, they appear to have quite a large rental fleet with some high end bikes. Also like the staff at Olympic Bike Shop in Tahoe City. They appear to have Specialized, Trek, and Ibis MTBs available for rent.
Q: What is the best time of year to ride Tahoe? -Guest
A: May to November
