Half-Day Self-Guided Electric Bike Tour | Lake Tahoe's Iconic East Shore Trail
Schedule
If there is a better time to visit Lake Tahoe than October, you must be on a different planet. The daytime temperatures hover around 62 degrees. Too cool for lake diving, but perfect for a half-day, self-guided electric bicycle tour around Tahoe's majestic East Shore trail. First, this is probably the best bicycling trail in the country, stretching all the way down to the lake itself. Secondly, these are not ordinary bikes. These are electric bikes, which means you can peddle assist if you like, or simply cruise a little slower and let the engine do all the work. Electric bikes are extremely easy to ride, and we have yet to encounter anyone not capable of using them. The East Shore trail has plenty of rest stops along the way if you need to use the facilities, or take a break for lunch, and the air is so invigorating you'll feel totally relaxed. Enjoy the lake vistas. Enjoy the visiting wildlife. Enjoy the views of the mountains. Be sure and bring your camera because there are plenty of opportunities to take a selfie.
