Sunday Sept. 24 -- Stetina's Sierra Prospect

We've teamed up with Stetina's Sierra Prospect to create a uniquely timed ride beside Lake Tahoe's crystal blue waters, through the Nevada desert and over Mount Rose--California's highest year-round summit. Two routes to choose from: one moderate, the other gigantic.
