So Much Gravel...

Heart of Gold Gravel features a course with an overwhelming % on dirt. Definitely gravel, not "groad". The event was created with the impetus of youth mental wellness, and the effort to bring people together for that cause in Nevada County. This October 8th, we ride from Nevada City's Rood Center over two course options ranging from 46 - 70 miles. Each route features ample climbing and lots and lots of amazing dirt. This region is one of California's hidden gems. For a good cause, and on a great course, there's no good reason to miss out on Heart of Gold Gravel.

New, longer route for 2022!

As promised last year, we're delivering a longer route for the second edition of Heart of Gold. Expect approximately 70 miles and 10,000 feet of elevation gain. We're not messing around this time. With an earlier fall date, additional daylight and mind-bending fall colors is going to grace our event this year.

Check out the new long route here.

New, medium route too!

Some might call it hard, but it's definitely dialed back. Consisting of more climbing per mile on average, but shorter. How about 46 and 7,100'? It's compact, it's tough, it's beautiful.
