The Park to Park Pedal-Extreme Nevada 100 Bicycle Tour includes three routes for riders of all levels:
103 Mile Extreme • 60 Mile Double Jack • 40 Mile Helix
Enjoy the miles of scenic beauty as you ride along Nevada's first Scenic Byway, Highway 93. Peddle past the 1920’s mission-style depot in the railroad town of Caliente and through the historic mining town of Pioche. Tour through four of Nevada’s scenic State Parks: Kershaw-Ryan, Cathedral Gorge, Spring Valley and Echo Canyon. Take in the breathtaking view of Meadow Valley as you coast down the hill from Pioche on your way back to Kershaw-Ryan for a mouthwatering Dutch oven feast.
103 Mile Extreme
This ride is the most challenging with approximately 5600 ft of climbing; you pedal through 4 state parks, 2 old west towns, and up Pioche Hill. Since you went uphill on the way most the return is downhill!
