Basin Bike Racks
Partners: Lake Tahoe Bicycle Coalition, Nevada Commission on Tourism, Squaw Valley | Alpine Meadows
Funds Granted in 2018: $35,000
2019 Goal: $35,000
A major goal of the Tahoe Fund is to encourage more people to leave their cars behind and to travel by bicycle. We recognize that bike racks are a critical piece of this strategy, so people can feel comfortable knowing there will be a place to safely and conveniently secure their bikes while out and about.
The Tahoe Fund, with support from Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows, is partnering with the Lake Tahoe Bicycle Coalition to provide bicycle racks throughout the Lake Tahoe Basin to businesses looking to encourage their guests to arrive by bike instead of by car. The nonprofit Bike Coalition is organizing the distribution and installation of the high-quality bike racks.

In 2018, with support from the Tahoe Fund, the Lake Tahoe Bicycle Coalition installed 215 free bicycle racks throughout the Lake Tahoe Basin, creating secure parking for 430 bicycles at key public destinations. Supported by additional in-kind support from the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, the Bike Coalition distributed the high-quality bike racks to Tahoe’s local jurisdictions and government agencies. The racks were installed at bike paths, parks, trailheads, beaches and other community gathering places and recreation hotspots.
