Nevada Highway 50 MTB Road Trip Video

Remember that trip we took at the end of the summer last year in Nevada? Well, James from Drop Media finished up the video, which features all the trails we rode. Check it out above and see the galleries from the trip in the Related column on the left.

In a related note, the registration for Fears, Tears, and Beers, the oldest enduro MTB race in the country, has opened! This is the big event for Great Basin Trails Alliance to raise money to go towards building new trail. The race has equal payouts and is known for being a good, challenging time. The event caps out at 200 registrants, so get on it!

Nevada Highway 50 MTB Road Trip: Caliente’s Hot Lines

A week ago, I embarked on a journey across Highway 50 in Nevada, seeking out mountain bike trails. We’ve come to call this trip the “Nevada Highway 50 MTB Road Trip.” This is the third installment.

Previously: Nevada Highway 50 MTB Road Trip: Carson Valley’s Clear Creek Trail, Nevada Highway 50 MTB Road Trip: Kingston and the Toiyabe Crest Trail, and Nevada Highway 50 MTB Road Trip: Ely and Cave Lake Trails.

Conveniently located a few hours from St. George, Utah and its magnificent MTB trails, is Caliente, Nevada. As we diverted off the gem that is Highway 50, I didn’t know what to expect. It was already dark by the time we pulled into the Caliente Hot Springs Motel and Spa – it sounds fancy, but don’t worry, it’s very approachable – and after a long day, we were all cooked, heading to bed immediately. Come morning, we were filled in with the day’s agenda.

Say you’re heading west, or east for that matter, from or to Moab, Utah for a mountain bike trip. You look at the map and your options are pretty straightforward. Next time you’re traversing Nevada, don’t skip over Highway 50. This road was dubbed “the Loneliest Highway” but it’s anything but that for mountain bikers. Strung along this ribbon of highway are gems of towns looking to draw in mountain bikers to experience their local trails, both new and old.

This is the tenth layout of the Radavist 2018 Calendar, entitled “Toiyabe” shot with a Canon 1DXmkII and a 24-70mm lens in Kingston, Nevada.

“The Toiyabe Crest Trail is one of the most underrated mountain bike experiences in the American West, but not without reason. This rugged place is difficult to get to and will require the utmost of navigational skills, but the reward is quite wonderful.”

Introductions to trips like this often times get wrapped up in marketing jargon, or storylines that revolve around re-imagining historical tales, and that’s not a bad thing at all! Finding a story on a trip gives it more meaning, more impact, and overall a better reading experience. Yet, the lack of a story doesn’t inherently doom a tale. Sometimes having fun on new trails is enough motivation to spur a road trip of epic proportions. To be honest, the story here is motivated by one thing: finding solid mountain bike riding along Nevada’s Highway 50, which was dubbed “The Loneliest Road in America” by Life magazine in July 1986.

I’ve been looking forward to this week for a long time. A handful of us is embarking on a trip across highway 50 in Nevada, dubbed “the lonely highway;” this beautiful high desert road is anything but that – especially when it comes to outdoor activities like mountain biking. We’ll be hitting various towns along the way, riding trails both old and new, all while soaking in the rich history and environment that is central Nevada…
