W: Rides of March

50 and 30 mile ride March 17 near Reno, Nevada

We hope everyone is getting as much wonderful riding as we are. The trails are in good shape. Planning is well under way and we are very excited to see everyone again next month. There is still plenty of space in the ride as entries are just starting to roll in. So get your entry in the mail quick.

We are also seeking great volunteers. Whether you are new to the sport or and old hand please come join us in camp. Volunteering is the best way to learn about the sport and meet new people.

The camp is bare bones. There is horse water available, but for the most part you need to plan on bringing what you need. There will be no camp fires allowed. Parking is very limited so if you can trailer-pool then please do so and plan on parking conservatively. As always we will provide the same wonderful lunch to all riders and volunteers

here will be a 50 mile and 30 mile ride. All holds will be in camp so there is no need for a crew. As there are no vehicles allowed in the ride area, crews will not be able to meet riders out on the trail unless they want to walk. The 50 mile ride consists of a 20 mile loop and two 15 mile loops. The 30 mile ride consists of two 15 mile loops. The trail is almost entirely sandy jeep roads and sandy single track, there are hardly any rocks
Ride camp is located off Red Rock Road, just a little north of Reno. Take the Red Rock Exit off US Hwy 395 and head east 15 miles. There will be ribbons and signs telling you where to turn right onto a dirt road. Follow the dirt road about a mile to camp
