Bike to the Barracuda encourages community members to bike to annual PGA tourney

Staff report

TRUCKEE, Calif. — Ditch the traffic and embark on a pedal-powered journey to the 25th annual Barracuda Championship.

The Bike to the Barracuda initiative encourages the community to bike from scenic downtown Truckee to the official PGA TOUR stop set for July 20–23 at Tahoe Mountain Club’s Old Greenwood. Spectators who make the climate-conscious choice to opt for to pedal will not only help reduce carbon emissions but also receive exclusive tournament perks, including 20% off daily tickets and one free beer courtesy of the presenting sponsor FiftyFifty Brewing Co.

Bike to the Barracuda participants can hit the road solo or make the trek alongside a group of friends and family. Follow Super73 on social for their group ride information. With plenty of directional signage and relatively mild terrain, riders of all skill levels can take part in this cruise to the course.

The preferred route kicks off at the tournament’s general parking lot — free parking will be available for visitors traveling from outside of Truckee. Take Church Street to Bridge Street and head northwest until you see tournament signage. After traversing through breathtaking stretches of the Tahoe National Forest, riders will arrive at the special entrance behind hole 12. Free bike parking will be available onsite.

After arriving at the course, riders can enjoy all that the Barracuda Championship has to offer. This event is the only one of its kind in the Truckee, Tahoe and Northern Nevada areas and offers an unforgettable experience for golf fans, families, and anyone looking for a summer activity complete with good food, drinks and fun.

The Bike to the Barracuda endeavor is one small part of the Barracuda Championship’s larger sustainability initiative to promote eco-friendly practices in the local community and beyond. Barracuda Championship also partners with Tahoe Mountain Realty, Super73, Stealth Tahoe, Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation and Forest Futures to minimize the tournament’s impact on the environment and foster sustainable practices both on and off the course.
