A Bike Kitchen event during Tahoe Bike Month helps tune bikes while giving free lessons on mechanics and tuning. 


Lake Tahoe, Nev./Calif. – The 19th annual Tahoe Bike Month begins June 1 with a full month of bicycling events throughout the Lake Tahoe Basin, the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) and the Tahoe Bicycle Coalition announced today. Bike Month is a basin-wide celebration of biking and a friendly competition to see which individuals and teams can record the most rides with weekly prize drawings for everyone who records a ride online.

“There is always a swell of regional support for bike month in Tahoe” TRPA Transportation Planner Ryan Murray said. “We are excited to continue collaboration with the Lake Tahoe Bicycle Coalition and our regional partners to encourage more people to get out of their personal automobiles and onto bicycles, particularly as the weather improves into the summer months.”

Community members who want to join the friendly competition can register at www.tahoebikemonth.org and connect their account with the Strava app for free to track bike rides throughout the month. Participants can join as individuals or create a team and start recording rides. Each recorded ride during the month of June is an entry to win local prizes.

Whether you’ve been riding a bicycle for years or are new to the joy of life on two wheels, TRPA and the Bicycle Coalition invite everyone to pump up their tires and join a great lineup of events:

  • June 1st – Truckee Day Cleanup from 8 a.m. to noon. Ride your bike to the cleanup to get a prize. More information is at keeptruckeegreen.org/volunteer/truckee-day-volunteer/.

“You don’t have to be a pro cyclist to enjoy pedaling around Tahoe – it’s a healthy way of life!” said Nick Speal, president of the Lake Tahoe Bicycle Coalition. “We encourage kids, families, visitors, and residents to join us on our wonderful bike paths throughout the month of June and beyond.”

Bike Month organizers encourage everyone to watch a short video to get their bike ready to roll and to remember to share the road when driving and biking around the region. Cyclists and drivers need to make sure to give enough space for one another. For more information on Tahoe Bike Month, visit www.tahoebikemonth.or
