This is a ride, not a race

This is a charity ride, so each rider is expected to collect at least $125 in sponsorship donations. We also have event sponsors that help offset the costs of the ride. All proceeds raised at this event support our valuable mentoring programs for at-risk children in the Nevada County and North Lake Tahoe region. Includes after race meal!

“Great ride. It was my first time and I’m already looking forward to next year. Thanks for putting it all together.” – West Bourgault

“That ride was awesome and I will admit challenging on a single speed. I was amazed with all the good free stuff in that bag and the food at your house was first rate. I want to thank you for the opportunity to ride as well as your hard work and generosity. I am certainly game for the ride next year. Hopefully I will catch you on the trails or at a race soon. Thanks again.” – Josh Hughes
