It is approximately 70 miles by road around Lake Tahoe.  It can easily be done in one day and there are plenty of places to stop for refreshments.  I like to travel in a clockwise direction.  This prevents having to make a left across some busy highways (especially hwy 50).  The weather at that time of year should be pretty good.  The mornings will be cool, low 40's, but the afternoon should see temps in the 60's or 70's.

72 miles to be exact.  The Tahoe Bicycle Coalition has free bike maps available ( ).  You can contact me and I can send you one or they should be available a bike shops and rental locations around the lake.  You may encounter numerous construction projects around the lake throughout the summer season.
