I just got done booking our shuttle for Downieville on Monday. Can't wait. We are doing a road trip from Santa Barbara to Mt. Hood, Oregon and passing through Tahoe and Downieville on the way up. We'll be gone for 10 days total.
Any recommendations for a moderate ride in Tahoe that doesn't need to be shuttled? My housemate just got back from there and he did Mr. Toads Wild Ride so we were thinking of doing that but we can't shuttle unless one person doesn't ride. So any other suggestions (and we want to keep the climbing to a minimum).

You should do Toads. Park at the bottom and ride the road to the top. It's a lengthy ride, but worth it. The road isn't very steep either. If you want to ride dirt up, then Armstrongs Pass would be the way to go. Even if you shuttle, you have to ride for a while to get to the start of Toads, most of which is uphill if I remember right.

Page Meadows is a decent ride that doesn't require shuttling. It has a pretty fun decent too, if you can find it. Good jumps, and one huge banked turn.
