Routebeschrijving

Day 1: Spooner Lake and The Flume

After a meet-up in Reno, we shuttle to 14,300-acre Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park, at a heady 7874-ft elevation. After orientation and introductions, we commence our first ride—The Flume Trail. Talk about a perfect bomb voyage! Besides unparalleled views of Lake Tahoe, Flume packs in moderately challenging climbs along with exhilarating, descents down a bygone flume chute. Kicking off at Spooner Lake - northeast of Incline Village—we lock into a four- and-a-half mile long, 1000-foot climb into the Carson mountain range. From the 8157-ft. summit at Marlette Saddle, greeted by swaying Lodgepole pine, our routing segues into the Flume Trail. Now 1600-ft. above the blue-green jewel known as Lake Tahoe, but only a half-mile distant, we sweep past Marlette Lake. A three-mile, 1500-ft descent to Tunnel Creek Road ultimately ends at the trailhead. Our support van waits there; poised to shuttle a contented group of cyclists to their inspired après moment at Northstar Resort*, closing out their first day with no less than a High Country classic.
*Northstar; Hidden among the trees in the majestic Martis Valley in North Lake Tahoe, Northstar welcomes you! You will discover what makes this resort unforgettable, feels timeless, and where comfort is top priority. Here, you’ll enjoy a personalized blend of adventure and relaxation over acres of diverse terrain and world-class amenities, as well as
our Village with superb après, fine dining, and chic boutiques.

Day 2: Northstar and Mt. Watson

Care to get wonderfully sidetracked? A big house of groove, the Northstar Mountain Resort folds plush singletrack into cross-country epics, wide-in-the-hips downhill into all manner of buff trail. Soon as the snow melts, Northstar seamlessly transitions into the largest, lift-access mountain bike park in Northern California. From an easy-on-the- joints pleasure cruise with the family, to a get-acquainted technical descent on Sticks N’ Stones, or the venerated Boondocks trail... or catching air on the rollers of Livewire and Gypsy, Northstar is an fantasy of fat tire riches: 33 trails in all. Our guides’ deep intimacy with the sweet spots, interpreting the best, purpose-built trails in the Sierras means out-of-this-world deliverables: an experience that maximizes every thrilling line and topographic variation.

Day 3: Downyville Downhill

A one-hour shuttle takes us to Downyville, California. An erstwhile gold mining settlement, Downyville comes across as cozy and inviting, if not absorbing for its rich history. Dropped into some of the most profound, if charismatic nature California has to offer, we gear up with our friends at Yuba and ride from the nearby Sierra Buttes and Lakes Basin, routing along a series of epic trails. Descending from above 8000-ft to 3000-ft., the trails reflect a combo of mostly intermediate, albeit spiced with some advanced segments. Aftera day of world-class downhill, in the heart of the Sierra’s, we trade the big outdoors for some equally pleasurable indoor experience at the *Nakoma Resort.
*Nakoma Resort -Located in Northern California, Nakoma Resort is a four-season treasure situated in the epicenter of a mountainous outdoor recreation Mecca—the Lost Sierra. Surrounded by 8,000-ft. peaks, more than two-dozen alpine lakes and thousands of acres of national forest, Nakoma is the perfect basecamp for world-class mountain biking. Nakoma features a one-of-a-kind Frank Lloyd Wright-designed clubhouse, a mountain-modern 42-room lodge and a 12,000-sqf-recreation center with a climbing gym, fitness studio, theater, heated pool, hot tub and more. Nakoma defines elevated adventure.

Day 5: Tahoe Rim Trail to Carson City

We go out with a Titan rocket-like bang, saving the Tahoe Rim classic for our finale. Kicking off at 8700-ft., our route sweeps from Incline Village up Tunnel Creek. Sweeping onto the Tahoe Rim, we gain the backcountry of Marlette Lake then along the old Red Flume. A true High Country epic, the Tahoe Rim trail lends big, spanning views not only
onto Lake Tahoe but Lake Washoe in Nevada, as well as the Carson Valley. From this vantage point, one can glimpse where the Sierras give way to the Great Basin, America’s largest desert. Pressing on, we sweep past Sunflower Hill, locked onto beautifully groomed sections of singletrack. Two-time national champ and Mountain Bike Hall of Famer Max Jones first cleared this trail in 1987. Finishing on the far side of the mountains in handsome Carson City, we close out with a late lunch at a local landmark restaurant across from Nevada’s State Capitol. At approximately 4 p.m. we return to Reno, and bid each other farewell.
