Celebrate the Tahoe Bike Challenge with this fun, physically distanced community cleanup event to prepare our bike paths for the summer. We will ride our bikes and walk on the paths as we clean. Volunteers that ride their bike or walk to the cleanup will receive a Tahoe Bike Challenge prize!

What to bring: comfortable clothing/shoes, sunscreen, cleanup gloves (if you have them), hat, sunglasses, face mask, any snacks that you would like and a full reusable water bottle.

We provide: clean reusable cleanup bags, clean gloves, hand sanitizer, sanitized cleanup equipment, wrapped snacks, and an online raffle for volunteers.

The cleanup is being conducted in partnership with the Clean Tahoe Program, Lake Tahoe Bicycle Coalition, South Tahoe Refuse and Recycling Services, and Tahoe Regional Planning Agency.

All volunteers attending Keep Tahoe Blue events must fill out a waiver. Volunteers under 18 will need to have a guardian sign the waiver, and the volunteer must bring the signed waiver to the event. The guardian may also attend the event and can sign off for the minor at the event.

For questions or more information, email events@keeptahoeblue.org.

Safety and physical distancing guidelines:

We’re all in this together. When we follow the guidelines and put forth the effort we can keep ourselves healthy, keep the community healthy, and Keep Tahoe Blue.

When taking part in any League activity, event or program, please follow physical distancing guidelines:

  • If you have a cough, fever or any COVID-19 symptoms, or have been in contact with someone that has displayed these symptoms, please stay home.

  • Maintain six feet of distance between you and others at all times.

  • Sneeze or cough into a cloth or tissue. If those aren’t available, use your elbow.

  • Wash hands regularly with soap or hand sanitizer.

  • Avoid shaking hands, hugging or engage in any unnecessary physical contact. (Bummer, we know)

  • Consider wearing a face cover.

The League is committed to providing safe, fun and meaningful events while pursuing our mission to Keep Tahoe Blue. To safeguard the health of our volunteers, staff and community, we have aligned our events procedures and preparation with the most current public health guidelines from governments and scientific organizations. 

To protect our volunteers and community, the League will: 

  • Stay home if we have a cough, fever or any COVID-19 symptoms, or have been in contact with someone that has displayed these symptoms, and will urge our event attendees to do the same

  • Ensure equipment is regularly cleaned with disinfectant and laundered, especially prior to each event

  • Regularly sanitize frequently touched surfaces

  • Ensure our staff wears face masks and gloves before and during events

  • Abide by social/physical distancing guidelines

  • Provide signage for best practices and reminders for infection control at the event

  • Provide sanitization materials, including hand sanitizer and gloves 

  • Stagger check-in times and areas to prevent large groups from forming

  • Mark six-foot spacing intervals at check-in areas

  • Minimize material handling and handoffs

  • Provide more extensive online trainings and materials in order to maintain physical distancing at events

  • We will provide first aid kits, but not first aid assistance
