Ted Schlater - Owner

Ted is the owner and founder of Vista Trail Bikes and has lived in Lake Tahoe for over 25 years. Twenty years ago, Ted managed a bike outfit in San Francisco that would send visitors on self-guided bike tours over the Golden Gate Bridge and return by ferry. When he saw the gorgeous East Shore Trail being built in his hometown, he translated that experience into a new business to serve visitors visiting Lake Tahoe. 


Ted shares blogs about biking and the Lake Tahoe area to give visitors and locals alike a hub from which they can get the most informative and comprehensible overview of all the activities and attractions here in Incline Village and North Lake Tahoe.
