    guided tours / bike rent at Lake Tahoe?

    I would like to rent a nice trail bike for my trip to Lake Tahoe this weekend.

    Where is a good place to do that?
    Something like a Mojo would be sweet to try out.

    If I can't find companions to the trip - is there a good place to book guided tours there?

    Would you like to join me?, I'll sort out the beers and transportation from bay area.

    I've never done one or used these guys, but I know there's a company called Lake Tahoe Adventure Company that does organized Mt Bike tours....(a friend from out of state was looking in to this same thing)

    Plenty of good rental shops, just off the top of my head:
    N Lake/Tahoe City/Truckee: Cycle Paths, Backcountry, Olympic.
    S Lake: Wattabike, Tahoe Sports Ltd.

    Try calling Flume Trail Bikes. I recall they had Ibis demos, and they've got a shuttle service to ride the Flume Trail (not technical, but great views). They also do a shuttle to ride the rim trail, but that probably still has snow on it.

    Otherwise, there are a lot of bike shops that rent decent bikes. Pick up a map at one of the shops. You don't need a guide.

    We used Tahoe Mountain Guides | Mountain Bike Tours and mtb guides and trails, Lake Tahoe and Truckee last year and did the Super D. They were cool, and they work with Cyclepath where you can rent a bike (Truckee).
    Faster is not always better, but it's always more fun

    +1 for the Flume Trail and Flume Trail Bike Shop (Google it). They rent bikes and have shuttles, but it's best to do it as a loop.

    People here poo poo the Flume Trail because it's not technical, but the views of the lake are awesome.

    Also did a shuttle run with these guys last year. I highly recommend them, great guides and a shop the run out of has everything you might need.

    I have used them also and been happy. While I haven't rented from them, their bikes appear very well maintained.
