For me, it was just like getting back on a bike after a very, very long time! The friendly folks at Anderson's Bike Rentals in South Lake Tahoe fitted me for a comfortable hybrid bike, and explained how to use the hand brakes and gears. Did I mention that it's been quite a while since I rode a bike? I felt that the bikes were reasonably priced--$9 an hour for adults and $7 an hour for kids. They are located right next to the paved, flat trail through the National Forest. They have a lot of bikes and bike trailers to choose from, and of course helmets too. My son enjoyed tagging along with dad on a trail-a-bike for the first time. We rode down to Pope Beach and put our feet in the icy water of the beautiful blue lake. Then we continued on down the trail to Valhalla, where we took in the art exhibit that was on display. At Camp Richardson we stopped for lunch at the deli in the general store. You can ride at your own pace with lots of pitstops along the way. For about a half day of riding our family of four spent about $100 with lunch. Not bad for an activity in Tahoe, where everything is pretty pricey.
