The Flume Trail-Lake Tahoe

August 27, 2013

I don’t ride my mountain bike very often. Technically it’s not even mine, it’s my husband’s bike; I just call it my bike.  When we went to Lake Tahoe, our friends had a great idea to ride this awesome trail: The Flume Trail.  I figured that it wouldn’t be that bad, my girlfriend did it and she said that it wasn’t that hard.  There were 6 of us (3 couples) that did it together.

It took us about 3 hours, but we did it. I huffed and puffed, but I had so much fun enjoying the awesome view!  It was a little sketchy for me in some areas when we were super high in elevation and it was a single track, but I persevered. I might have walked my bike for a few parts….or maybe several parts. I might have even held up the tail of our crew the whole time;  I thought of it as “taking in the scenery.”

I would highly recommend this ride for anyone visiting Lake Tahoe. Even if you ride your mountain bike once a year, like me, you would have fun cruising the trail and taking your time.  There is a shuttle that you can pay $20 per person to take you to the start of the trail, if you are not the frugal type.  We took 3 cars and shuttled ourselves to the start. It was great!  We used that $20 instead to buy some cold beer and a good meal at a local restaurant instead. Here are some pictures from our adventure:

    I did my first cycle ride in 6 months yesterday… now I find cycling to be a pain in the butt! That trail that you are riding looks inspiring, though!
