Reno Tahoe is the ideal place for cycling and mountain biking enthusiasts!
The city is bike friendly with a series of well-marked, connecting bike lanes that rivals or surpasses bike lane route systems in other cities.
The Truckee River has one of the prettiest paths to bike along. The 12-mile Truckee River Bike Path runs from west of Chrissie Caughlin Park are eastward along the Truckee River through downtown Reno and runs all the way to the very eastern end of the city of Sparks.
If you’re looking to get off the beaten path and onto some dirt, there are several mountain biking trails, bikeways and parks available to get your adrenaline rushing. The Peavine Trail is located just north of downtown and offers some insane views of the city and terrain suitable for all levels. Make sure you bring plenty of water because shade is limited on this barren but exhilarating ride. The Tahoe Rim Trail and Flume Trail are both home to world-class mountain biking with everything from epic views on a mellow singletrack to burly climbs and exhilarating descents.
