Tour de Manure
Sierra Valley Metric Century
Saturday June 11, 2011
Sierraville Volunteer Firehouse 8am
Ride with us through the ranchlands, meadows and historic communities of Sierra Valley in this organized tour benefiting the Sierraville Fire and Rescue Department. Keep your eyes open for hawks, yellow-headed black birds, sandhill cranes, deer, and other wildlife abundant on these headwaters of the Feather River. Both metric- and half-century routes give sweeping views over the valley from terrain that has only mild elevation gains.
The 62-mile route starts at the Sierraville firehouse heading west toward Sattley, turns north on A-23 to Beckworth, goes east for 2.5 miles on Hwy 70, then back into the center of the valley toward Loyalton and Sierra Brooks, and back down historic Hwy 49 to Sierraville. The 30-mile route follows the gentle curves of Hwy 49 toward Loyalton and back.
Entry fee includes SAG wagon, food and drink stops, t-shirt, and a POST-TOUR PARTY with FOOD, LIVE MUSIC and DANCING.
