What an event! Loved the energy. Hope they get to come again!
I was lucky enough to see the riders go by on 174. Amazing, it took about 5 minutes for the riders, the chase cars and the police cars to go past. Very impressive!
It’s so fun to see our beautiful county in the background of this event.
Great photos Erin!
Didn’t know this was taking place in Nevada City yesterday. I am in Maui right now but want to thank you all for your great blog which keeps me up to date on the local community events
