Mountain Biking in Fall can Lead to a Wheelie Good Time
|It's time to gear up for some fall mountain biking before the snow hits. Luckily, the North Lake Tahoe area alone has more than 100 trails to go round and round on. An added bonus, Lake Tahoe in fall presents trails that are still in prime condition and with fewer crowds. |
Cycling through the slopes of Lake Tahoe in fall present a plethora of color from the changing leaves of the surrounding aspens. With a front row view to the fall foliage, take your pick from the diverse lineup of trails. The popular North Tahoe Single Track is great for all levels, where the hills are short and moderate while the downhills are mellow and smooth. For the more advanced riders, the well-known Flume Trail is a strenuous ride with rewarding overlooking views of Lake Tahoe. Conversely, choosing the paved path tour of the Truckee River Bike path provides a great family excursion accompanied by scenic river and foliage sites.
Changing gears a bit, mountain biking is a great human powered aerobic activity. Depending on the speed and terrain of your ride, biking can be a great outdoor activity burning anywhere between 10 and 16 calories a minute. Mountain Biking also leads to increased muscle strength and cardiovascular improvements.
