A Benefit for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Nevada County and North Lake Tahoe
For 2018, Gourmet Gravel has partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Nevada County and North Lake Tahoe for the 2nd annual Gourmet Gravel Nevada City on May 12, 2018. The mixed terrain bicycle ride offers two distances over some of the finest gravel roads accessible from downtown Nevada City, gourmet cuisine and craft beer from ol’ Republic Brewing Company…Brewed in Nevada City.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of Big Brothers Big Sisters Miles for Mentoring ride that was started by local resident Rick Kalb and continues to raise funds for the Mission to “Provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever”. The partnership between Gourmet Gravel and BBBS merges two events and allows the organizations to combine resources for a unique Nevada City event.
With a start/finish at the ol’ Republic Brewery taproom in the 7 Hills Business District, participants can choose from two scenic and challenging routes that cross the majestic South Fork of the Yuba river at both Edwards and Purdon crossings while exploring the Tahoe National Forest on Nevada County roads. The rides are fully supported with multiple aid stations, staffed by friendly volunteers and there wil be a post ride party and raffle hosted at the ol’ Republic Taproom.
