Fall is the best time to ride the dirt in Truckee/Tahoe. Spring = still skiing, snow covered stuff at altitude. Summer = blown out moon dust, heat and crowds. Fall = empty trails in great condition and mellow temps + fall color bonus.
Below are some pics from fall rides mostly the big epic w/ my bro that is further detailed in this post . . .
Some bonus material on a big epic w/ my bro . . . this route riffs on the same ride from my house in TD — the net on this route is a bit shorter, no Northwoods road climb at the end *and* what really matters is jumping in the lake on an 80 degree Indian Summer day w/ a beer so cold it hurts your hand . . . route stats/maps/etc. below and enclosed . . . more at garmin connect:
If this has you all fired up you can scratch your itch this weekend w/ the latest Six Pack Super Deezy more on that below per a prior post (with apologies to Truckee River Day . . . sigh many of your volunteers will be gorging themselves on the trails themselves at the Six Pack . . . but most of these cats are the ones building/maintaining/etc. *all the time* not just one day per year so its all good . . .):
Yo –if you roll #mt bikes in #Truckee this is a must-do event go get your ass and a beer handed to you in one motion . . . I am solo w/ the kiddies this weekend so not in the cards but I can say the collision of Chickadee and Six Pack Super Deezy is going to be EPIC! See Conrad’s post below for details . . .
