Slow Rollers Poker Run 2016 – South Lake Tahoe

Today I took part in a bicycle poker run organized by the Slow Rollers Bicycle Club of South Shore, Lake Tahoe. This was a very fun, well run, beautiful ride along the south shore of South Lake Tahoe.

One of the participants was riding a Corker Monster Cruiser. (pictured above).  For those not familiar with this bike, this is the world’s first (and maybe only) 36″ wheel bicycle.  As the name implies, this thing is monstrous.  Look how it dwarfs the 26″-ers around it.

This is the first Corker that I’ve actually seen in the wild. Impressive bike.

Pictured above is a cool stretched custom frame bike.

I rode the Da Vinci Flying Machine (always a head turner and crowd pleaser) for the event. Here is the Flying Machine parked along the beautiful and scenic shores of Eldorado Beach, South Lake Tahoe – another of the stops.

Overall I was very impressed with this event and will definitely do it again.  This was my first Slow Rollers event, but will not be my last.  The Slow Rollers Bicycle Club website has a list of the events they host.
