A Forest Service Special Use Permit has been issued for this ride! 2015 was first ever legally-permitted Rose to Toad’s event, which means this is more than just a group ride. In 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 we were able to raise about $16,000 for trail maintenance and building. From humble beginnings with a handful of people to nearly 200 participants and a full-on party scene at the rest stops in recent years, this event has come a long way. The “unlimited bragging rights” you get for finishing this beast are legit!

About the Ride

Over 62 miles in length with 8,000+ feet of climbing and 10,000+ feet of descent, this is the most amazing (and tough) mountain bike ride. What started off as a hair-brained idea with a few friends many years ago, before TAMBA’s rebirth, is now one of our signature events that attracts crazy people from all over the country. It takes most people all day to complete the ride and showcases some of the best trails linking Lake Tahoe’s North Shore from Mount Rose down to the South Shore, ending on the famous Mr. Toads Wild Ride. It’s not a race but the ride can be as intense as you want it to be. Join us and be part of something awesome!

For 2023, we will have three rest stops along with a finish-line celebration. The Tahoe Rim Trail Association will be at the Spooner rest stop and Shoreline Tahoe will provide support with a  rest stop just after Kingsbury Grade.  The final smaller rest stop will be at Armstrong Pass.

DISCLAIMER: This ride is self-supported.  There is no sweep or sag and you need to be prepared for anything.
