LINCOLN COUNTY, Nevada (September 10, 2023) — Nevada State Parks announced that the Park to Park Pedal Extreme will return to Kershaw-Ryan State Park on Saturday, Oct. 7. The popular ride is now open for registration.
Cyclists will enjoy miles of scenic beauty as they ride along Nevada’s first Scenic Byway, Highway 93, and peddle past the 1920s mission-style depot in the railroad town of Caliente and through the historic mining town of Pioche. The tour winds through four of Nevada’s beautiful State Parks: Kershaw-Ryan, Cathedral Gorge, Spring Valley, and Echo Canyon, and includes breathtaking views of Meadow Valley. The tour is capped off with a hearty Dutch oven feast at Kershaw-Ryan State Park.
