Updated June 1, 2022 – The Beaver Dam 49er Gravel Grinder is slated for June 18, 2022 at Beaver Dam State Park in South East Nevada. The ride will have 10, 35, and 45 mile options through the rugged and gorgeous terrain of Lincoln County, Nevada. A gravel grinder is a ride that takes place on gravel roads that are generally less technical than singletrack mountain biking. The ride starts at 6:30 am. The ride is in its ninth year. This year’s registration includes a t-shirt.

We asked organizer Dawn Andone to tell us about the ride. Riders on course at the Beaver Dam Gravel Grinder in Beaver Dam State Park, Nevada. Photo courtesy Beaver Dam Gravel Grinder Cycling West: What are the courses like for the Beaver Dam Gravel Grinder? What type of bike do you need to use? Is the ride timed?

Beaver Dam Gravel Grinder: The course is mostly over dirt and gravel backcountry and jeep roads. There are some rocky patches that can be considered technical, but we have tried to keep those to a minimum. However, rain events can change the terrain—sometimes this results in having to change the route.

Fat tire bikes are the most appropriate. Some areas can be rocky and others sandy.

The ride is not timed. We want you to enjoy the scenery and take-in what Lincoln County and Beaver Dam State Park have to offer.
