After a grueling 4 mile climb, visit with the bike patrol and a thick roll of gauze the Flume trail showed why it is one of the most famous bike trails with jaw dropping vistas of Lake Tahoe. Thanks to The Flume Trail mountain bike shop this whole ride was possible!
On the first bank after the thigh burning climb I went into the turn with far too much speed and crashed. Walking away with a flap of skin hanging from my palm and a 4 inch gash decorating my forearm I finished the rest of the 13 mile trail. Thanks to the Nevada Bike Patrol I peddled away from the scene. to the members of the bike patrol: thank you for dedicating your time to keeping Tahoe’s trails safe!
