Deathride 2019-LOGO

I’ll be out Friday afternoon with a few members of the Tahoe Douglas Elk’s Lodge. Rest stops for Saturday’s Death Ride® need to be stocked with water and supplies.  Located in our own backyard, the course covers five mountain passes including both sides of Monitor Pass, both sides of Ebbetts Pass, and the final climb up the east side of Carson Pass.  The race starts and finishes at Turtle Rock Park outside Markleeville.  Riding 129 miles and climbing over 15,000 feet in one day is a daunting task.  Watch out for bikers and visitors if you have plans to visit the area on Saturday, July 13th.  Go Biker’s!

Concert Reminders:

Please do not lay blankets on the lawn until after 5pm the day of the concert. Blankets left out for the day can damage the grass and will be removed.

For the benefit of all visitors to Minden Park who wish to enjoy the concert series, reserved/sectioned off spaces must be no larger than 10’ x 10’.

If tape is used to reserve a section, the tape must be removed for safety and visibility reasons prior to the start of the concert.
