Tahoe Games bike nights continue
The second annual Tahoe Games Bike Night Series continues with this year’s third event on Friday, July 29 with registration at 7 p.m. Races begin at 9 p.m. and are conducted in three heats. Classes are determined by age and bike type.
“This illuminated, x-country course spans across the golf course, over fairways, into the rough, through sand traps and over bridges with the occasional cart path,” according to a press release from On Course Events.
Bike lights, helmets, headlamps and costumes are all encouraged. Motorized bicycles are not allowed.
“[Ride] your bike among family and friends, under the stars with festival-style lighting across a unique and challenging x-country course,” Leslie Schultz of On Course Events said in a news release. “Tahoe Games is an incredible experience everyone in Lake Tahoe should have!”
The race is approximately six miles, with two laps around a three-mile course for most classes. Event attendance for spectators is free and open to all ages.
“Demo bikes will be available for competitors, with great raffle prizes awarded,” according to the release.
“The course will be designed for any type of non-motorized bicycle.”
Races are held at Lake Tahoe Golf Course, at 2500 Emerald Bay Road. There is a $20 entry fee — $15 for kids — to compete. After the race, awards and an after party will be held in the clubhouse.
