The Tahoe-Pyramid Bikeway is a vision of following the Truckee River by foot or by bicycle from its source at forested Lake Tahoe to its desert terminus, Pyramid Lake. The route will descend over 2000 feet in 116 miles, using a combination of existing dirt and paved roads, plus some sections of new trail and bridges.

Janet Philips, TPB President received the 2017 Trail Champion award from California Trails & Greenways Foundation. Way to go, Janet!

USA TODAY says Tahoe-Pyramid Bikeway one of the 15 best free things to do in Nevada!

Thank you to volunteers and our great contractor, the trail is open all 11 miles from Floriston to Verdi just in time for summer riding!

See current site specific conditions on the "Use the Trail" page for the section you are going to visit, as there are often temporary closures or repairs that may affect your ride.





The trail near Floriston is now clear of flood debris and open, as is the section between Verdi and Fleisch Bridge previously closed for construction. Happy riding!


After being stuck at the Farad boulder field since September 2015, this key connecting trail segment is now completed, and you can go explore it. This short section of trail was VERY challenging, so be sure to stop and admire the rock work that went into it!  This connects the Bikeway all the way from Verdi to Floriston (12 miles) by trail.


Our Supporters

Thank you to everyone who came out for the 2017 Tahoe-Pyramid Bikeway Bike-a-Thon!

Beginner through experienced riders rode 97 hours in 15 classes for approximately 1,940 total miles throughout the day! They were led in each class by Great Basin Bicycle's Rich Staley (201 miles) or Cat Gardella (100 miles). Non-riders brought food, cheered on riders, and shared information about the Bikeway with many visitors to the bike shop. Enthusiastic supporters who heard about the event stopped by just to donate. It was really a fun day!

The bike-a-thon raised just over $1200 for the Tahoe-Pyramid Bikeway. This exceeded our original maximum expected donations! More importantly, this event increased awareness of the Bikeway to cyclists and the general community. None of this would have been possible without the generosity and partnership of Great Basin Bicycles​ and volunteers from Tahoe-Pyramid Bikeway. Thank you!


Each year, we have over 100 donors who give $100 each or more. The money raised by the Century Circle giving campaign is used for trail planning and design, as well as modest administrative costs. If you want to join the donor list, click here.

Thanks to all who donated so far in 2016!

DO YOU HAVE A CORPORATE EMPLOYER WHO MATCHES YOUR DONATION?  Many companies will match their employees’ charitable donations dollar for dollar.  So be sure to ask (probably the HR department or community relations).  Thanks to Chevron and Haws Corp for their match donations!

If you would like to know about how to create a challenge grant (you match donations from smaller donors) or a bequest, please call us at 775-825-9868.
