Alpenglow Sports will launch the Fall 2019 Tailgate Talks on Oct. 3 with Tahoe local Alenka Vrecek.

Vrecek 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.

All the events will take place in the shop in Tahoe City with the door opening at 6:30 p.m.: the show will begin at 7 p.m. Every show is free. Beverages will be available for purchase with all proceeds going to a nonprofit beneficiary. | alpenglowsports.com
