    I was fortunate enough to get to participate in one of On Course Events’ signature nighttime mountain bike races in South Lake Tahoe. Bike Night was held, of all places, at the Lake Tahoe Golf Course. Yep, right down the fairway, over the bridges and through the sand traps. Oh, and did I mention that the entire race takes place […]

    I love seafood, particularly shellfish, but living in the mountains makes accessing fresh-caught creatures of the sea somewhat difficult. Although fresh seafood is readily available in many Tahoe and Reno restaurants, I often feel guilty about the time and resources it takes for a sea-to-table dinner in the mountains. However, thanks to Tahoe’s invasive population of crayfish, satisfying that craving […]
