Bike the West and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society invite you to participate in the 22nd annual America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride, one of the most scenic and awe-inspiring rides you will ever experience. Spectacular scenery, clean mountain air, great food and full support by experienced ride organizers make this ride a ‘must do’ for any avid recreational bicyclist.
Nearly 3,000 cyclists from throughout the United States come to Tahoe to ride around the Lake. For many, nearly 2,000 riders, they are here as a personal challenge and commitment to their friends and loved ones who have been inflicted with the Leukemia/Lymphoma disease. Each passionate rider has raised at least $4,000 to be here and some have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to help fund the research to discover a cure for these deadly diseases. This event is the largest fundraiser for Lymphoma/Leukemia Societiy in the nation - one year they raised nearly $8,ooo,ooo dollars.
Boat Cruise/35-Mile Fun Ride, 72-mile ride around the Lake, and full 100-mile century are offered. This ride promotes Lake Tahoe Bikeway, the plan to build and interconnect bike lanes/trails around Lake Tahoe, and is the culmination of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's National Team.
