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.

TRAIL CONDITIONS

 

FLOOD-RELATED CLOSURES & EFFECTS

:: Mustang Ranch to USA Parkway section of the trail is closed until further notice due to flooding.

:: The trail near Floriston has rockfall and deep mud until spring.

TRAIL NEAR FARAD IS OPEN!

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.

TRAIL FROM VERDI TO FLEISCH BRIDGE CLOSED

This section of trail remains closed for TMWA construction. Estimated re-opening in March 2017.

MEET ERNEST E. TSCHANNEN - OUR NEW BENEFACTOR!

On June 16, the Bikeway had the great fortune to receive an endowment pledge from Ernest E. Tschannen of Orangevale, CA for $1,550,000 from his estate!  Ernest is a generous Swiss outdoorsman who wants to see the Bikeway preserved for future generations. In recognition, you will soon see his name on new Bikeway trail signs.

The significance of his gift is huge, because the Bikeway cannot continue forever without permanent funding, which grants rarely provide. Ernest’s pledge will provide at the time of his death a substantial start to an endowment fund to sustain the Bikeway.

THANK YOU ERNEST!!!

 

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.
