Go for a Spin



Go for a Spin!

Bikeworks is open in a new temporary location* for summer 2014. Head on up to Tahoe Donner Downhill and check out our extensive rental bike fleet, stocked with Giant brand bikes. We sell and replace more than a third of our fleet each season, so whether you are looking for some daytime dawdling or some high energy Alpine descents, Bikeworks has the bike for you.

This season’s new bikes are highlighted by Giant’s brand new Trance X 27.5-inch full suspension mountain bikes and Talon 27.5-inch front suspension mountain bikes. Our experienced bike mechanics are also on hand and willing to help get your own personal bike tuned up and ready for your next ride.

Kids Bike Camps

Following the success of our kids bike camps last summer, new for 2014, this two-day camp will run every Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. through September 7. Camps are open to kids ages 10 to 18 who can ride a bike for 1.5 hours at a time. Our experienced guides will focus on providing a fun and safe environment where kids can improve their general knowledge of mountain biking. Exploration and adventure are also priorities as kids will get the chance to cover ground and do some sightseeing from the extensive trail system. Our guides have years of experience teaching kids to become better riders, and with our diverse range of trails, everyone will have fun! Cost for the camp is $80 per child. Rentals are available for a separate cost if needed. Contact us for reservations at 530-582-9694 or bikeworks@tahoedonner.com.

Group Rides

Guided rides are available for $10 per person. These rides last between 1.5 and 2 hours, and are available daily at 10 a.m. or 1 p.m. Route choice is based on the fitness and skill level of the group. Rentals are available for a separate cost if needed. Contact us for reservations or more information.

Strava Competition

For this summer, we have created new Strava segments on trails commonly ridden from TD Bikeworks. Strava is an independent website which allows users to compare their times on certain segments of roads or trails to others who have ridden that particular segment. We will have a season-long competition to see who can ride each segment the fastest. Remember to stay in control, share the trail, and ride responsibly. You can use any iPhone, Android, or Garmin device. Call or stop by for more information.

Cruiser Bikes at Tahoe Donner Beach Club Marina

The Beach Club Marina will continue to offer beach cruisers for those looking to ride around Donner Lake.

*Bikeworks will only temporarily be housed at Tahoe Donner Downhill for summer 2014, while the Cross Country Ski Center is under construction.
