LimeBikes Hit the Scene in South Lake Tahoe

Have you been noticing a wave of bright green bikes parked around town or whizzing down the streets of South Lake Tahoe? This is not just newest hipster bike trend–it’s LimeBikes!

LimeBikes are a bike sharing network company based out California. The idea is to have bikes available to all community members to ride around various areas for a small price, without having to check the bikes into a stationary location.

LimeBike App on Iphone

How does it work? A LimeBike trip requires three items: a bike, your body, and a smartphone app. You download the app, use it to locate a LimeBike bicycle, scan the QR code on the bike with your phone to unlock it, and hop on your ride. After you’re done riding, lock the rear wheel into place, leave the bike, and go about your next adventure.

Watch the LimeBike official video on how this process works: https://www.limebike.com/#lime

How much does it cost and how do you pay? The bikes are currently $1 for every half hour or less ride. Within the app, load money into your account using your credit card information. You can load a little money or a lot of money. If you anticipate many rides and load more money onto your account, you may be able to earn discounts or free rides. If you do not end up riding very much, the deposits are refundable. Good news: your first ride anywhere is free–the best price!

Where can you leave your LimeBike? You can leave it in any safe location. LimeBike.com suggests “places that don’t  block car traffic, impede pedestrian access, or encroach on private property. ”

Need more information? Just ask a LimeBike rep around town! There are 200 bikes in the South Lake Tahoe area, and LimeBike representatives are riding a handful of those throughout the city in order to promote the idea. You can spot them with a LimeBike backpack or other brand gear.

The LimeBike bicycles are fixed-gear bikes, which means you won’t have gears to shift. They also do not come with helmets. If you are looking for a helmet to rent, a bike that can handle an incline or rocky ridge, or a bike mechanic, then please visit one of South Lake Tahoe’s phenomenal local bike shops:

The bikes are currently on a trial basis in SLT, and they  will be disappearing in October once the weather starts to cool, so don’t miss the opportunity to try out a LimeBike today. It is time to reduce car traffic and increase cycling adventures around South Lake Tahoe. Download the app and start riding today!

Keep Tahoe Blue Beach Cleanup Success!

Fireworks were launched, picnics were had, sparklers were ignited, and fun was shared all throughout South Lake Tahoe on the 4th of July. This left our beaches quite messy after the celebration–but no fear, Keep Tahoe Blue was here!

All of us here at RnR Vacation Rentals had the best time partnering with Keep Tahoe Blue League to Save Lake Tahoe during their annual 5th of July beach cleanups.

Throughout the morning and along six different beaches, there was a total of:

  • 320 volunteers out there with trash bags and gloved-hands
  • 1,676 pounds of trash collected and sorted
  • 5,242 cigarette butts removed from the depths of the sand
  • 6,357 pieces of plastic found and sent to be recycled
*Totals provided by Keep Tahoe Blue League to Save Lake Tahoe 

A huge thanks to all who came out to participate! We are already looking forward to providing refreshments, raffle prizes, and smiles again next year.
