Lost and Found Gravel Grinder

Lost and Found Gravel Grinder

June 01 2019
Portola, California, USA

To all Lost & Found participants, we can't wait for you to experience three brand new and beautiful backcountry routes near Lake Davis!

This is the Sierra so plan on running wider tires with more tread. We recommend at least 40mm wide tires for cyclocross bikes (like WTB Nano 40mm tires), and riding a light, fast rigid mountain bike with 2.0 tires wouldn't be a bad choice either, especially if you are more comfortable on a mountain bike. There are lots of rocks and rain ruts crossing the dirt road sections in numerous spots, so when in doubt, check your speed a little. Although there are sections of gravel and almost 40 miles of road in the approximately 100-mile event, the non-road sections will make you savor the pavement and all the amazing views. The route for 2018 will be smoother than the 2017 route, but there will still be some rough bits - notably at "Vicious Cows", which is featured toward the beginning of the ride.

This year will be much more than just a "gravel grinder"; it will be a rugged and beautiful off-road adventure - Lost Sierra style - so plan accordingly.
