Mt. Rose Meadows to Chimney Beach Downhill

If you ask any Cross Country Mountain Biker who lives in North Lake Tahoe what their favorite mountain bike ride in Tahoe is?  Most likely, they will respond with "Mt. Rose meadows to Chimney beach".  The reason being is that the views and terrain on this portion of the Tahoe Rim Trail are just absolutely spectacular.  The ride consists of fast sandy single track with views of Lake Tahoe and Carson Valley throughout the whole ride.  Technical challenging uphills and downhills with massive granite rocks are everywhere.  There is never a dull moment on this Tahoe Epic.  They say pictures are worth a 1000 words so I will let the photographs do the rest of the writing.

Sherry McConkey is Strong!  It's always a treat to ride with her.

Sara flying down Chimney Beach!

Shelly Walco is a trooper completing the 20mile ride with a blown out knee!

The guys on this ride were out numbered 7 to 4 and the ladies were much better looking and impressive, so they made all the shots.  Sorry guys!
