Lumos held its 7th Annual Flume Trail Ride on August 19, 2017. More than 50 employees, clients, and friends joined for three levels of rides, a walk around Spooner Lake, and a BBQ lunch. This fun event exemplifies our team’s love of the outdoors and is an important part of our culture here at Lumos.

Lumos’ avid mountain bikers led three different rides from Spooner Lake to the famous Flume Trail. Our guests had the opportunity to choose from three different rides, all set against the breathtaking terrain of Lake Tahoe. Almost 20 bicyclists participated in a 13.5 mile ride that ended with a shuttle ride back to Spooner Lake from Tunnel Creek Café in Incline Village. Seven bicyclists participated in the second ride, which followed the group to Tunnel Creek Road. From there, the riders split off to follow the Flume Trail to Marlette Lake, then back to Spooner Lake for a total of 22 miles. The third ride, for our seven expert riders, was 23 miles with 3,200 feet of climbing. This was the longest, highest, and most technical ride of the event. Lumos also led a 2.5 mile walk around the shores of Spooner Lake for those who preferred to travel by foot, not pedals. After a fast-paced morning, attendees met back at the Spooner Lake picnic area for a BBQ lunch, games, and storytelling from the trail.
