guided mountain bike & gravel day tours

Put the map down, pick up a bike and let Dirt Gypsy Adventures show you the way. With an infinite array of mountain biking and gravel riding opportunities throughout Truckee, Lake Tahoe and the surrounding area, we'll show you what dirt dreams are made of. 

 

Our guides will share epic routes, set the pace, offer up pointers and fix your flats. They'll make you laugh, sweat and smile, challenge you to dig a little deeper, then hand you a cold beer at the end of the day. We invite you, your family, and friends near and far to join us for an incredible day or two of alpine adventures on our world-class trails and backroads.

If you're a rider of any level looking to boost your skill sets, take a look at our ride instruction page and consider joining a clinic this season. With a variety of courses on offer, you can pick the right curriculum for you to get in-depth instruction so that you'll ride away with increased control and confidence.
