The Great Tahoe Flume Race Presented by the Reno Wheelmen
I found this information about the Great Tahoe Flume Race over on The Bacon Strip!
Race Course Description
“Starting near Spooner Lake at an elevation of 7000’, the course starts up a 4 mile, 1100’ climb to the top of North Canyon. A short descent takes the riders around Marlette Lake and onto the Marlette Flume Trail. Along the Flume Trail there is a mandatory dismount at the rockslide. Once off the Flume Trail, a short but steep climb takes riders over Tunnel Creek Road where a sandy downhill drops riders onto the Red House Flume. Passing the historic Red House, riders begin the brutal climb up Sunflower Hill to 8300’, the highest elevation on the course. A quick descent back to Marlette Lake where the final climb takes you to the finish at the top (saddle) of North Canyon Road. The course is 18 miles with 3100’ of climbing. After the finish, it is a 4 mile downhill ride back to the start. It is important that riders control their speed and yield to other trail users through this section.”
