    World's toughest mtb ride. Auburn to Lake Tahoe

    Anybody out there that has done this event and can share his/her expericence. The only comparison I have to and endurance event is 24 hours of Moab, which I did last October. Anybody care to comment?

    I haven't done it, but I live in the area (south lake) and have never heard of this. What is the route?

    Looks like a lot of climbing on pavement followed by a really tough 'real' MTB ride. Might be more fun to skip the 64 miles of pavement and just do the dirt. Unless you're in it for the challenge.

    what a pity to zip through the georgetown area and stay on the pavement/buff fire roads. there is some really sweet singletrack there. on the other hand, by the time you get to the really gnarly stuff, most humans would be way too tired to enjoy it. i put together a small group ride across the rubicon one year. only one of those guys has ever ridden with me since. i guess it's not appropriate terrain for everyone. if you're bored, here's the writeup:
    screaming lemur . i think my course is way funner, and probably not much harder.
