This is a 12 day, unsupported mountain bike ride across central Nevada on mostly dirt and graveled roads. Aptly dubbed the Great Basin Bike Route(GBBR), it starts in beautiful north Lake Tahoe at the CA/NV state line at Crystal Bay, NV and ends at the NV/UT state line in Border, Nevada. It can also be ridden in reverse…ending with an unforgettable descent into the Tahoe Basin down the famous Flume Trail. Riders traverse some of Nevada’s most rugged and isolated landscapes during the crossing. Many of Nevada’s highest and most impressive ranges transect the route. The GBBR is not along Hwy 50, the “Loneliest Road in America”. This route is much lonelier, more isolated and more scenic.
