June is Bike Month in Lake Tahoe
LAKE TAHOE - The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is reminding motorists to be aware of increased bicyclist activity in the Lake Tahoe region during Bike Month in June.
Motorists need to share the road with bicyclists on roadways where there are no designated bike lanes. Bicyclists also need to take precautions when traveling through construction areas. Caltrans offers the following reminders:
The 22nd annual America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride takes places in Lake Tahoe on Sunday, June 2, and the Tahoe Bike Challenge, which encourages bike riding rather than driving, is June 1-14.
Sunday’s bike event, which is sold out, will take riders on portions U.S. Highway 50 and State Routes 89 and 28 around Lake Tahoe. Signs will be posted alerting motorists of the event. Highway 89 will be closed from Spring Creek Road to Vikingsholm Vista Point in Emerald Bay from 6:30 to 8:30 a.m. on Sunday for the event.
For more information on the bike challenge, go to tahoebikechallenge.org.
