America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride is back, and Bike the West’s Curtis Fong is encouraging both bicyclists and motorists to share the road this weekend. With more than 3,300 extra cyclists at Lake Tahoe this Sunday as part of the 72-mile around-the-lake ride, it’s pretty sound advice. It’s also a handy reminder that, as we move into the busy summer busy season, there will be more people walking, riding and driving on the road in coming weeks. It can get a little hectic out there in summer, but if everyone does their part, we can keep it safe and fun at the South Shore. Here are some more picks for this week:

1. Kytami

This Canadian violinist returns to the South Shore this week, bringing her unique stylings to Whiskey Dick’s Saloon Saturday night. The “violinistextremist” is sure to entertain. Also, the performance is free.


I had the opportunity to get a look at the new Loft Theatre at Heavenly Village this week, and it made an impression. The intimate theater has an old-school carnival feel that creates a classic setting for its nightly magic shows. The Loft also offers live music on select nights, and a new burlesque show opens this week.

3. Hit the trail

The weather forecast for the weekend is looking pretty great, with highs expected in the mid-70s. Snow is also starting to melt from the trails, opening up the Lake Tahoe Basin to all kinds of outdoor pursuits. The Tahoe Rim Trail Association is one organization that will celebrate the outdoors through National Trails Day this weekend. The association will hold an event at Spooner Lake on Saturday, June 4.
