Annual Park to Park Pedal Event @ South of Caliente
Oct 13 all-day

Annual Park to Park Pedal – Extreme Nevada 100
The Park to Park Pedal-Extreme Nevada 100 Bicycle Tour includes three routes for riders of all levels:

100 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.

100 Mile Extreme
This ride is the most challenging with approximately 5600 ft of climbing; you pedal through four state parks, two old west towns, and up Pioche Hill. Since you went uphill on the way most the return is downhill!

60 Mile Double Jack
A more moderate challenge, this ride does include Pioche Hill which is approximately 1400 ft of climb in about 10 miles. Once you hit the old mining town of Pioche it is all downhill from there! You see two state parks and two old west towns along the way.

40 Mile Helix
For those of you who are looking for a shorter ride WITHOUT extreme hill climbs this is for you! This ride takes you to Cathedral Gorge State Park in Panaca, ending just before Pioche Hill. You see two state parks and the old railroad town of Caliente.

Support
Rest stops with a great selection of food and beverages are offered at Cathedral Gorge State Park, Miller Point scenic overlook, Pioche, Echo Canyon, and Spring Valley (lunch). For the 40 and 60 mile riders the lunch stop is back at Kershaw-Ryan.

Drop bags are available at the first three rest stops if you chose to discard clothing. First aid and technical support are provided at rest stops and on the course. And SAG support just in case!

Where to Stay
Camp in one of the four State Parks: Kershaw-Ryan, Cathedral Gorge, Echo Canyon, or Spring Valley
