Formerly Ride Around the Rubies, this longstanding cycling event has transformed into the Ruby Roubaix! Get in on this gravel adventure for the inaugural ride on June 19, 2021, which begins in and ends in the picturesque town of Lamoille, Nevada, nestled at the base of the majestic Ruby Mountains. Here in rural northern Nevada, you’ll find all the elements for great gravel racing: spectacular scenery, vast expanses of lightly traveled roads, challenging terrain and a healthy dose of small-town hospitality.
Gravel riding—also known as gravel grinding or adventure riding—is a form of cycling that combines road and mountain bike terrain. Courses are mostly distance rides over unpaved roads and take the sport of cycling to the next level with exhilarating discoveries.
Experience the wild, rugged beauty of Nevada on a bicycle choosing from 20-mile, 36-mile, 62-mile or 117-mile routes on a mix of gravel and pavement. Event is Fondo style so you can race it or ride it–you pick. Routes range from mild to the wild so you choose your level of challenge as well. We think a gravel bike is just about the perfect way to experience our hidden gem of Nevada. Register NOW! #gravelnevada
