Join Cycle the Sierra from June 22-26, 2013 on a fully-supported, five day cycling event that takes place in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of Northern California. Each leg of the ride benefits a different nonprofit organization and the Sierraville to Nevada City leg is in support of SYRCL. There is still space available if you want to join in on the fun. Online registration is at www.cyclethesierra.com.
This journey takes riders on a 300-mile loop through breathtaking country, beneath granite peaks, through evergreen forests and to alpine hot springs. You’ll ride through iconic locations like Lake Tahoe and the area where gold was discovered starting the California Gold Rush, over the 4th highest bridge in the US, and through numerous unique and historical communities along the way.
Each day cyclists will travel roughly 60 miles. At night, you’ll camp together under the stars. Camps will feature delicious food, live music, a beer and wine garden, massage therapists, bike mechanics and other cyclists letting loose on vacation from all over the United States.
If you like being a part of truly beautiful mountain scenery, good food and live music, relaxing with a cold beer after a great ride, spending time with old friends and meeting new, CYCLE THE SIERRA is an event you don’t want to miss!
