Mountain Monday: Tahoe Basin Adventures

Mountain Monday: Tahoe Basin Adventures

Altitude training is not something to be rushed, but with new techniques and know-how, it can be sped up By Meggan Wenbourne A view of Cascade Lake from my run up to Maggie’s Peak. This last week I spent a majority of my time in the Tahoe Basin climbing, running and hiking with new friends from all over the world.

Bike Like a Girl

Tahoe area organization offers support to female cyclists By Tim Hauserman Photo courtesy Bike Like a Girl. Bike Like a Girl was formed by three women with a passion for biking, who had a fierce desire to help other girls and women find the same joy and fulfillment from biking that they do. It’s a volunteer organization formed in 2015 with a three pronged approach to helping the sport of women’s cycling: They run camps to introduce younger girls to what a great sport biking can be; they support an ambassador program which focuses on getting women out riding together on a regular basis, while also learning about mechanics and fitness; and they established a small Elite Team of top women cyclists who proudly wear the Bike Like A Girl jersey as a positive roll model for women cyclists. The idea began with Julie Young, who spent 12 years on...
