Why go to the Carson / Tahoe Moto?

Carson / Tahoe Moto is a fantastic way to learn about one of the best areas for motorcycling in the US. We created this event to share some of our favorite roads with riders like you. Besides great rides on pavement, or dirt, or both, our area offers spectacular scenery, very light traffic, a motorcycle-friendly community, great restaurants, and affordable lodging.

Here is the event schedule.

Local roads

Obviously, you could come up and ride our local roads any time. And we hope you will, again and again. We are very fortunate to be very close to hundreds of miles—thousands, really—of scenic, twisty, uncongested roads. Fill the tank, check the tires, grab a map, and head out exploring. You might be gone for weeks. But if you only have a few days we can help you get off to a great start.

Did you know that some of the best mountain roads in the Sierra are closed for several months a year due to snowfall? Do you know when you might be most likely to see new-born calves in Carson Valley? Or when spring runoff makes simple shallow water crossings impassable. We do, and we’re happy to share that information with you.
