Sunday Bike Stroll

Thursday, September 22nd, 2011

It’s Indian Summertime in Lake Tahoe – which means less crowds, temps in the low 70s, plenty of daylight and all the same outdoor recreation we love in the summer. In fact, it’s one of my favorite times of the year. The other weekend my partner in crime and I stayed at Granlibakken and rented bikes for a Sunday stroll along Tahoe City. The wonderful part about Granlibakken is they arrange the rentals for you and the bikes are delivered from West Shore Sports. You don’t have to do anything, no lines, nothing.

We ventured about a mile to the trail that takes you along the Truckee River. One word: be-au-ti-ful! It provides ideal spots for photos ops, reading plaques about wildlife and the environment and just soaking in the views. This four mile section from Tahoe City to Squaw Valley is a paved multi-use trail that is mostly flat with a few easy grades (we only biked until River Ranch because we wanted to have plenty of time to explore downtown Tahoe City). It’s located far enough away from the road that you aren’t bombarded by the noise of nearby traffic. The trail can be busy at times so abide by the rules of staying to the right side in case people want to pass on your left.

Granlibakken is an ideal home base for accessing a variety of scenic road and mountain biking trails along West Shore. Stay tuned for more info on riding around Commons Beach as well as biking/walking along the shops in Tahoe City.

Peddle Safe!

Women’s Wellness Weekend 2011

Thursday, September 15th, 2011

Leave the men at home weekend…

As part of Granlibakken’s commitment to health & wellness, the annual Lake Tahoe Women’s Wellness Weekend – a long standing community event in Tahoe City- will now be hosted by the resort November 12-13. The event fuses Eastern tradition with Western practices to offer a balanced weekend of information, inspiration, activities, food & wine.

Hosting events is Granlibakken’s forte.  The schedule for the Women’s Wellness Weekend starts with optional exercise activities including a 5k fun run or 1 mile nature walk through the perimeter of Granlibakken’s hillside forest. I love running in the fall when it’s cool, you don’t get overheated and seeing the Autumn leaves – it’s beautiful.

Breakfast is followed by an opening “jump-start” talk by respected Psychologist Amy Vail.  Seminars on Saturday include breast health, environmental health, nutrition, healthy aging and empowering exercise activities (optional).  Choose between Ki Gong, a form of gentle exercise using breathing, posture and meditation:  Restorative Yoga, Or a special class  ref: Astrology/Health.  Lunch is provided and flows into further talks throughout the afternoon. Saturday evening finishes with wine and shopping. Go for a new experience and have your astrological chart read by Robert Ayres (additional charge).

Festivities on Sunday include optional exercise classes of Cross-fit, Pilates and yoga with discussion classes and a health fair. Enjoy breakfast followed by classes on finances for your future, acupuncture, chiropractic and skin care. The afternoon includes an interactive health fair including gait analysis, makeup artists, body fat testing, skin screenings, mani & pedi stations and much more.  Blood lab readings are available and must be signed up for in advance (additional charge).  For the adventurous women attend the Zumba Party Sunday afternoon.

Registration is only $99.00. To register, please visit Granlibakken’s homepage and click “make a reservation.” Click “conference” and use the information:  “www” as your login and password.

Grab a girlfriend and stay for $138.50/person double occupancy per person per night (rate includes conference fee).

So who’s going to join me this weekend? What aspect are you most interested in learning?  I’m intrigued by Astrology/Health and love Zumba classes!
