One Woman, One Bike, One Story

Alpenglow Sports welcomes long-time North Tahoe local, Alenka Vrecek, who will talk about a life changing solo bike ride she took from the Sierra to Mexico. This feat came on the tail end of a breast cancer diagnosis for Vrecek, and a Parkinson’s diagnosis for her husband. Despite the odds, Vrecek decided not only to persevere but to thrive and push herself to do even more, for fear of running out of time.

Alpenglow Sports is excited to launch the Fall 2019 Tailgate Talks for the greater Lake Tahoe region. The Tailgate Talk line up is one of the biggest to date with a total of six shows in 2019 from October through December. All shows are free with beverage offerings from Sufferfest and Sierra Nevada. 100% of all beverage sales will benefit local non-profit Gateway Mountain Center.

The Tailgate Talks have become a cherished tradition at Alpenglow Sports over the past 11 years, with the intention to bring the greater North Lake Tahoe community together to learn about and celebrate the various aspects of the mountains that we all love, at no cost. Bringing in a series of speakers and athletes passionate about their respective sports, the environment, and the greater community, the Tailgate Talks are the ultimate way to come together and connect with our neighbors. We look forward to seeing you there!
