Highlights from the Bike Ride

Emerald Bay Bike Ride

The highlight of the bike ride was definitely enjoying Baldwin Beach in South Lake Tahoe. The weather was great and the lake water felt refreshing after biking ~10 miles.

Even though there wasn’t too many people on the bike trails, I always bike with a mask.

My bike’s on the left and my Veronica’s bike is on the right. We found a bench on Baldwin Beach where we could leave our stuff and jump in the water.

I live in Oakland so I had to transport our bikes to Tahoe. My Yakima FrontLoaders held up well during the drive!
