Every ride should start with coffee and end with beer! Agreed? We can make that happen for you with out even moving your car. Park at Over The Edge, come in get a coffee, get on our shuttle, RIGHT BACK TO the shop, and enjoy high fives and a beer in our garden!
Our shuttle service allows you to ride right back to the shop on single track 99.99% of the way.
Here’s the scoop:
The Tahoe Rim Trail (“the TRT”) is a 165 mile piece of single track that circles the crest of the Lake Tahoe Basin. The TRT is almost entirely open to bikes. Along the east and south shores bikes are permitted without restriction or interruption. The quality of trail is world-class; amazing views, pristine and remote.
There are several access points to the Rim Trail and also several trails descending off and toward the lake. This makes for several amazing shuttle options. From all trail-heads you can ride back to the shop on trail with less than 1 mile of pavement.
Our trail shuttle serves the various trail-heads and options along the east and southern shore.
The following trail-heads are our most often served shuttle destinations:
