Lake Tahoe, United States
This is big bicycle ride. Not necessarily because of the distance (if you're a regular road cyclists this amount is your usual Saturday or Sunday ride) or the terrain (there are only a few sections with significant climbs), but big because of the...

625 W Lake Blvd, Tahoe City, CA 96145, USA
Tahoe House is a wonderful bakery. It is a little out side of Tahoe City's main down town, and worth the extra step of getting there. My biggest dilemma at Tahoe house is deciding what to get as everything looks amazing and taste equally...
2005 NV-28, Incline Village, NV 89452, USA
