NV Washoe Humboldt Motorcycle Roads

Tahoe ride : Reno - Incline Village - South Lake Tahoe
NV - Washoe/Humboldt/Pers... > Nevada > United States > America

This ride is best done not on days when everyone wants to go to the lake, or you will be spending more time at lights than is ideal.
Also, it is MUCH more enjoyable when there is no construction.

The truck route into Virginia City from Moundhouse, this road is mostly empty with the infrequent semi, RV, or slower driver making their way up. One passing section at the Lyon/Storey county line. Pavement is mostly smooth with the biggest hazard behind dirt and small rocks coming down off the mountain. Corners are big sweepers designed with trucks in mind.

Main hazard to look out for are wild horses and folks crossing the double yellow. The Sheriff station is at the top of the hill.

Exceptional corners. Be on watch for debris on roads from Virginia city center heading down to Highway 50.

This route starts in ernest from Steamboat, just south of Reno (take the 395). It is quite steep and twisty in places and takes you past Lake Tahoe.
