I am taking a preliminary survey to gauge the interest in a 2021 Tour d' Hoe. I am looking at the weekend after Labor Day 9/10 -13. That is the beginning of the tourist slow down for Lake Tahoe. Current thinking is to use the same Beach Hotel we did a few years ago. Plan a drive up from Auburn or Placerville on Friday Morning maybe a wine tasting on the way. Depending on the drive some free time at the Hotel and Beach followed by dinner on your own. Saturday I am thinking a drive to Virginia City and lunch at one of the old saloons. The drive to Virginia City involves a couple of old hill climb courses. With the return trip down Giegers' Grade and back over Mt. Rose into Lake Tahoe. Then an evening group dinner at the Hotel. Possibly a Sunday event with a private tour of the George Whitell Thunderbird Lodge. Interesting piece of history if you want to look it up.

Right now I am looking for your thoughts. We need to move quickly to secure Hotel Rooms

Yea, Nay, Maybe?

I'm not dead yet. I am feeling much better!

Noel, thanks for taking the lead on this. Ginny  I would be in for another cruise around Tahoe! We'll follow the progress on this Tour D'Hoe.

@Karyadi @Robert M @Napa Paul @Ryan in NorCal @Sacto Mitch @Dave Mitchell @barncobob @Troy Sloan @Rick99GSX @Terry Nuckels @goofer @Larry Bull ably

I'm probably forgetting a few SOCers, but hopefully this will alert them to join in.

Tagging all the California Speedster folks I can find.

Noel is organizing a Speedster tour in Tahoe in early September. Mark your calendars for September 10-13 and come join us!

@Speedster Marc can you help with some merch design?

Yea!

Unfortunately we will have to pass if the Tour goes the week end of September 10 - 13.

That week-end covers September 11 and I anticipate being involved in memorial ceremonies that Saturday.

Keep us posted if there is any interest in a date change as we’d love to get up there and get together with everyone after missing the SLO Cruise this year!
