March 11, 2019 Update: In order to deliver on the objective of giving mountain bikers a true backcountry experience on world-class singletrack that challenges riders as much as it inspires & rewards, and allowing for extra snowmelt time in a potentially record-setting Sierra Nevada winter, Epic Rides today announced a date change of the Carson City Off-Road from June 14-16 to June 28-30.
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.
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.
From beginners to seasoned weekend warriors and full-time pros, each Epic Rides Off-Road Series event welcomes mountain bikers of all experience levels with three different length courses (15, 30, or 50-ish miles) that challenge the mind and body plus deliver inspiring views of nature’s beauty.
