Mountain bikers, rejoice! Tahoe Area Mountain Biking Association’s sixth annual Rose to Toads ride kicks off bright and early on Sunday, Sept. 4, at 6 a.m.

“Join us on Sept. 4 to ride over 62 miles in length with 8,000 feet of climbing and 10,000 feet of descent. This is the most amazing (and tough) mountain bike ride,” states the event website.

There are two rest stops along the way — one at Spooner Summit and one just past Kingsbury Grade at Boulder Lodge — as well as a finish-line celebration.

“It takes most people all day to complete the ride while showcasing some of the best trails linking Tahoe’s North Shore from Mount Rose down to Lake Tahoe’s South Shore, ending on the famous Mr. Toads Wild Ride. It’s not a race, but the ride can be as intense as you want it to be. Join us and be part of something awesome,” according to the website.

The ride is self-supported, meaning there is no sweep or sag. It kicks off at Mount Rose, located at 22222 Mount Rose Highway near Reno.

Tickets cost $45, and proceeds go to TAMBA’s trail building efforts.

“[TAMBA puts] this ride on every year as a member benefit and to showcase the amazing riding in Tahoe,” according to the organization’s website.

The event is open to anyone willing to ride. The organization recommends bringing a patch kit, first-aid kit and junk food, among other items. For the complete list, find TAMBA on Facebook.
