YOUR ULTIMATE CYCLING ADVENTURES STARTS HERE: In Bear Country
Tucked in the base of Northern California’s Sierra Nevada mountain range, a stone’s throw from Reno and Chico, and spanning between the small towns of Taylorsville and Greenville, you’ll find our Bear Growl roads and trails for this one-of-a-kind cycling experience. We offer seven ride options, all surrounded by old barns and pummeled (in the best way) with fantastic views; these rides will not disappoint!
Down Home Goodness
We can firmly say that this is a frontier experience where the air is crisp, the creeks are clear, and the food is homemade and top-notch. Social distancing to us is no crowds, no lines – just a good time.
