Biking Trails in the Silver State

Ready to tackle some two-wheel territory on your next road trip to the Silver State? From freshly-laid smoothly-paved biking trails in Tahoe and the Las Vegas Valley to wide-open highway treks to thousands of miles of single track tucked throughout damn near every mountain range in Nevada, take your pick and let’s ride

For fans of full-suspension, Nevada’s mountain biking scene screams with thousands of miles of routes and trails of all levels, from easy rolls to fast and flowy to serious-business rocky, technical rough terrain. Trail ride world-renowned mountain switchbacks, old-school EPIC-certified routes, and hundreds of miles of brand new singletrack mountain biking trails that are breaking ground all over the state. 

Point those handlebars solidly downhill at Boulder City’s Bootleg Canyon, tear up trails all over Ely, crush crowdless cross-country throughout Austin’s slice of the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest, and don’t you dare miss world-famous, vista-studded Tahoe trails, like the Flume Trail and Tahoe Rim Trail—some of the most scenic mountain biking trails in the United States. Some brand-new must-dos for all mountain bikers, include the serious singletrack Shangri-La at Caliente’s Barnes Canyon Mountain Biking Trails System, some historic Death Valley area wild burro trails turned singletrack at the Spicer Ranch in Beatty. Hop on a Las Vegas mountain biking tour to take on fire roads turned mountain bike routes in the surrounding Spring Mountains.

Road bikers owe themselves a loop through Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, as well as a climb (and then a brake-burner) up and down Elko’s glacier-carved Lamoille Canyon. Feeling ambitious? All 72 miles of road around Lake Tahoe are cycling territory. And the endless horizons along Highway 50—the Loneliest Road in America—are a bikepacker’s dream.

For family fun, there’s a light at the end of the tunnels on Boulder City’s Historic Railroad Trail—or even let things go on the rails with Rail Explorers, a rare, all-ages chance to try rail biking in Nevada, and keep your adventure literally on track

Whatever you’re after, bring—or rent—your wheels, dial up your sense of adventure, and let the Silver State take care of the rest. Ride on, baby!

After two months of searching, lydia.r.penn finally found the mythical, one-of-a-kind #RTCRainbowBike!⠀
⠀
Out of rtcsnv's entire fleet of 200 bikes (spread across 21 stations in DTLV), there’s only one painted in rainbow colors. The bike was introduced June 1, 2018, to coincide with Pride month and was featured in RTC’s Pride rides in 2018, as well as in a contest to win a free year Bike Share membership.⠀

What bike are you riding? Let us know in the comments! Earlier this year I upgraded from the Specialized Dolce Elite to the Specialized Diverge E5 with future shock. This week we're putting on some Panaracer Gravel King tires and lighter wheels to really get adventurous and start using all this fitness we have on dusty roads!

Sunday Storytime about Las Vegas, the place where I grew up. No matter who you talk to that's not from here, or hasn't spent significant time here, they will say that Las Vegas is The Strip, some outlet malls, and nothing more. ⁠

When you visit a few times, or arrive here as part of a road trip, you'll notice the expansive desert and beautiful scenery along the way, but once you're in the city you'll likely end up in the
