Biking

The Nevada City Bicycle Classic says it all. Endless mountain bike trails say even more. The Classic is the second-oldest race in the nation and in addition to die-hard local riders, the Father’s Day event attracts the likes of Greg LeMond and others. Off-road riding is just as popular, making the area one of the most popular bicycling areas in the U.S. with trails crisscrossing the Yuba River and meandering through the Sierra Nevada foothills and peaks.

Tour of Nevada City Bicycle Shop offers year-round rides and classes as well as rentals, gear and great advice and the Bicyclists of Nevada County keeps an updated guide of off-road trails. Cyclepaths in downtown Truckee provides High Sierra maps, shuttles and tours.
