Ride the Carson City Off-Road June 16-18! Choose from three different distance options of 15, 35 or 50 miles; each consisting of a carefully curated set of spectacular trails. All participants will climb their way into the eastern edge of the Sierra Nevada, take in huge views of Lake Tahoe, Washoe Valley and the Carson Valley while connecting some of the area’s favorite (and challenging) pieces of singletrack, double track, gravel roads and the occasional paved segment.

During your visit to Carson City, enjoy three days of event festivities while being submerged in the mountain bike industry. Mingle with the most bike-minded people you’ll ever encounter while appreciating the area’s silver mining heritage and feeling welcomed by its modern day appreciation for the outdoor enthusiast.

Nestled 30 minutes between Reno and Lake Tahoe boasts an array of unique restaurants, challenging singletrack, historical attractions, museums, gaming opportunities and a plethora of year-round, outdoor experiences beyond the mountain bike.

Visitors will find plenty of open space, fresh mountain air and friendly residents to encounter. Carson City is a forward thinking community that has evolved to offer exceptional experiences to visitors, regardless of their interests.  From the memorable Sierra Nevada Mountains to reminiscent days gone by of the V&T Railroad and beautifully restored buildings, Carson City offers outstanding value to travelers.

With an award in the form of an engraved railroad finisher spike, top-notch free live music, a cold beverage from Four Peaks Brewing Company (gratis) and the comfort of the capitol city’s sprawling shaded lawns waiting at the finish for all participants…this is one finish line worth preparing and persevering for.

The Carson City Off-Road has a 98% finish rate. Bring your climbing legs and you’ll do just fine.
