Bicycle Across America
Summer 2011—One Fire Station at a time
Day 4
The Gold Country Bicycle Tour
Cameron Park, California

June 19, 2011 –Father’s Day – Sunday

Breakfast at the hotel. I'm starting out early, on a multi-prong search to find a bicycle shop.

I did not find one. So, it is on to South Lake Tahoe...

This morning, I met some nice people this morning beginning with Chris Morse, his cousin Kim and her dog Murphy.

Chris bicycled across America last summer. He and a companion started in New York City and completed their journey in San Francisco. Picasa Web Albums - Christopher Morse - EPIC BIKE TRIPjavascript:void(0)

Kim and her dog Murphy donated to the Search Dog Foundation. You can donate too via our link on this blog.

Later in the morning I met Tory from Cameron Park, CA. He donated to the Lung Cancer Alliance. You can donate too via our link on this blog.Tory provided transportation to South Lake Tahoe.

My first stop, of the day was at the Quality Inn & Suites.

John Ashton is the Manager. He is a mountain bicycle enthusiast. John is knowledgeable about the Lake Tahoe area. He likes bicyclists and he is easy to visit with.

The Quality Inn & Suites™ Casino Area is perfectly located on Highway 50, walking distance from Lake Tahoe and less than one mile from the Heavenly Ski Resort and Lake Tahoe Casinos. This South Lake Tahoe, CA hotel is also close to the Edgewood Golf Course, the Tahoe Queen Cruise and Zephyr Cove.

Full-service amenities include free continental breakfast, free local calls, free weekday newspaper, free coffee in the lobby and free shuttle to major ski resorts. Guests will also enjoy the seasonal outdoor pool and hot tub.

Stay at the Quality Inn & Suites when you are visiting South Lake Tahoe.

The motel is is not far from the Sierra Ski and Cycle Works. That's where I met, the owner, Gary Bell.  

I was delighted to learn that this year, 2011, his business is celebrating it's 30th anniversary.

The Sierra Ski & Cycle Works is easy to find. They sell and service Jamis bicycles. Gary and Chris knew exactly what to do with my Jamis Super Nova (bicycle # 343).

The service is fast, friendly and very professional. I recommend Sierra Ski and Cycle Works. The customer service is excellent. 

Thank you, guys, for working on my bicycle. I felt safe and secure on the, three-mile, 9% climb up Kinsgbury Grade and the eight-mile, 9% grade descent.
