Tinker Classic Cycling Festival & Race
The 2021 Tinker Classic has been cancelled. We look forward to welcoming you back in 2022!
Held at Spicer Ranch, located ten minutes north of Beatty, the annual Tinker Classic is two wheels of fun for the amateur, pro, kid or kid at heart. All are welcome for this great event on bikes!
Be a participant and enjoy some great rides through the Mojave Desert in and around beautiful Beatty, or just come out and enjoy the many festivities that are part of this storied southern Nevada mountain bike event.
At the Tinker Classic, you’ll get all the hospitality that a small town can muster up. Beatty and the Spicer Ranch pull out all the stops to welcome riders and spectators alike for a full weekend of racing and biking fun.
The scene includes a host of food vendors serving up great grub and beer. Live music fills the air over two days from the main stage. An awards ceremony will be in the evening, then fire barrels will come out and guests can enjoy the crisp air under the perfect desert night sky while swapping stories and yarns of the day.
The weekend’s events feature a three-day bike expo with demos, the 60K Gravel Gran Fondo though Death Valley National Park and Rhyolite ghost town, group ride over more than 60 miles of single track, activities for kids and, of course, meeting Tinker Juarez.
Spicer Ranch Trails is a 120-acre working ranch with cows, horses and wild burros that also features a spectacular mountain biking course. The ranch boasts two large pastures with green grass and numerous freshwater ponds, which provide a habitat for several endemic species, including the Amargosa Toad.
Combining private property with federally managed BLM land, the ranch is open to the public year-round for mountain biking and hiking.
