Really? That was fast! Hard to believe summer 2013 has come and gone. In our third season of operation, we were greeted with numerous mtb tours, beginner to super advanced excursions, and all ending with high fives, maybe a beer or two and dirt crusted smiles. Now winter is upon and Tahoe Mountain Guides is making way for another season of snow shoe adventures. But, before we get cozy for winter 2013/2014, let’s reminiscence to the many mountain bike adventures had with new and old friends. Let’s remember our accomplishments and new trails conquered; a new sport you tried and succeeded… and booking another tour for next season! So, thank you to TMG’s many mountain bikers, return clients and tours to come.
As we always say, “the ride is about the client, not the guide.” This has been our mantra since the first tour and holds true to this day. We love to mtb, but we want you to love mtb’ing as much as us. So, we will not be a parent or demanding coach, just a friend enjoying the scenery Tahoe/Truckee has to offer. We are there to give you suggestions to enhance your skill level, but most importantly, for you to have as much fun as we are having. That is why we do what we do. These same ideals carry over to TMG’s snow shoe adventures. Just you, nature, a fresh blanket of snow, and some know it all guide who keeps telling you facts and history of the Truckee, Tahoe area. Yeah, we love where we live!
Tahoe Mountain Guides Full moon snow shoe tour dates are available on our website. If you would like to book a snow shoe tour for another date, just call, text, email, smoke signal… we can accommodate your needs and customize a snow shoe tour for any occasion and ability. TMG will provide snow shoes, poles and a warm beverage and some of the most amazing scenery our winter wonderland has to offer.
The sport of mountain biking can be intimidating at first: rocks to ride over, dirt trails, no cars, and a full suspension bike. But, Tahoe Mountain Guides take the worry out of mountain biking! If you are new to mountain biking, TMG will start you off on our Manzanita Mountain Bike Tour… a get to know the bike, type of terrain you may encounter while riding a mountain bike, and most importantly, to have fun.
The Manzanita Tour will begin on gentle fire road with minimal hill climbing and descents. Our exceptional guides at TMG will instruct you how to shift the bike, proper foot position and technique for climbing and descending the mtb trail, as well as when to sit or to get out of the saddle. Each and every rider will become comfortable on the dirt and gravel fire road before we ever venture on to single mountain bike trails.
When our guides access your riding ability, we will then exit the fire road and explore some lite single-track mountain bike trails. The pace is always yours and the views and landscape is always breathtaking. We will encourage you to look ahead, get familiar with your surroundings and enjoy the sport of mountain biking with a smile.
Please note: mountain biking may cause giddiness, extreme exhilaration, a smile, and cause you to make an entire new set of friends. If over 21, TMG suggest you finish a mountain bike ride with a beer and never consult your doctor.
Happy riding! The TMG Crew.
