Just twenty five miles north of Truckee lies the sleepy little village of Sierraville, just on the edge of the Tahoe sized valley known as the Sierra Valley. The Sierra Valley is a great place for cows, wildflowers and a variety of birds, and it’s also an awesome place to go bike riding. You can ride a big level circle around the valley and marvel at the birds arising from the wet spots, or do a bit of climbing by heading just north of the valley to Frenchman’s Lake or Davis Lake. You can take the short jaunt to ride the Sierra Valley anytime, but one great option is to arrive on a summer Friday, when the Sierra Farmers Market is in session just a bit south of Beckwourth. The best way to ride the valley, however, is to be a part of the Tour De Manure. This year set for June 21st.

The Tour De Manure is a metric century ride, which at 62 miles is much more civilized then the grueling 100 milers. It circles the Sierra Valley, giving you plenty of opportunity to decipher how it gets its name. It starts and ends at the Sierraville Volunteer Fire House, which is appropriate because it is a major fundraiser for the Sierraville Fire Department. When you finish, inside that firehouse you will find lots of excellent food and drink, and outside you will find a party going on, with a band, and lots of Tahoe and Truckee locals enjoying a hopefully beautiful sunny day.

For information or to register go to . In addition to registration, this year the inaugural Tour http://www.sierravillefireandrescue.com/biketour.html. De Manure bike jersey is available for purchase. Don’t you want a raging bull on your back while you are riding through the farm land?
