Sierra Valley Metric
Cycle the meadows and historic ranching communities in the Sierra Valley, one of the Sierra Nevada’s largest high valleys. The tour offers a 62-mile loop, a 42-mile loop, and a 30-mile out-and-back route, all supported with food, drink & SAG wagons.

Address
Sierraville Volunteer Firehouse
102 Main Street
(Go east on Calif. hwy 49 at Sierraville's blinking light.)

Fees: $60 by June 14; $70 starting June 15 to race day. Sign up on active.com until June 19. After that, registration must be at the race.

Fee provides a commemorative “roaring bull” T-shirt designed by Jay Huebert, rest stop food & drink, and a post-tour party with tri-tip and beans by When Pigs Fly BBQ, chips and salsa from Los Dos Hermanos, and live music by Michael Hogan and the Simpletones! Pre-race yodeling and guitar tunes will be provided by Dwight Brooks and Smithneck Farms Coffeehouse.

*Proceeds benefit Sierraville Volunteer Fire and Rescue!

Ride with us through the ranchlands, meadows and historic communities of Sierra Valley in this organized tour benefiting the Sierraville Fire and Rescue Department. Keep your eyes open for hawks, yellow-headed black birds, sandhill cranes, deer, and other wildlife abundant on these headwaters of the Feather River. Both metric- and half-century routes give sweeping views over the valley from terrain that has only mild elevation gains.

The 62-mile route starts in Sierraville heading west toward Sattley, turns north on A-23 to Beckworth, east for 2.5 miles on Hwy 70, through the valley toward Loyalton and Sierra Brooks, and down historic Hwy 49 to Sierraville. The 42-mile route cuts off the Sierra Brooks leg. The 30-mile route follows the gentle curves of Hwy 49 toward Loyalton and back..
