Tried and True. Get the original Lake Tahoe experience by taking the 72 mile ride around the lake, or add on to the ride with great vista points. The route we have created takes you by some of our favorite spots to enjoy the views, take photos and grab refreshments. We recommend going around Lake Tahoe in a counter-clockwise direction from our shop at Rolling Freedom Motorcycles Lake Tahoe. This route takes you through Cave Rock, up the East Shore and up to Incline Village. One of our favorite places to grab a quick snack on a motorcycle or Slingshot is at T’s Mesquite Rotisserie.
Add on to the journey by heading up to the Mount Rose summit for twisty fun and stunning views of Lake Tahoe from the north shore. Head back down toward the Lake along the north shore and grab some refreshments along the water at Garwood’s in Tahoe City. From there, cruise along the west shore towards Emerald Bay State Park. There are plenty of places to grab photos or you can go for a quick hike up to Eagle Falls. As you make your way back towards South Lake Tahoe, you can stop by the Divided Sky in Meyers, a biker favorite in Tahoe. By heading this direction, you can avoid much of the South Lake congestion and enjoy Pioneer Trail.
