Virginia City 100 Entry is now live!


Due to the COVID-19 group size restrictions,
the Virginia City 100 Mile Ride will be limited to 40 riders this year
and we expect to fill up—and fill up FAST.
Here is the online entry

If you must fill out a paper entry and mail it in, please contact me ASAP at with your relevant AERC information and I will send you the form. Your spot will be held for 5 days for you to mail in the entry and payment. I will publish the list of riders and the wait list shortly after all the spots have been taken. There has been a lot of interest this year and I really, really wish we did not have to limit the ride and could welcome everyone to this wonderful event!!

Riders: please start planning is how you're going to do this with no crew. If we are capped at 50 people total per the state, that means I'm looking at something like 40 riders and 10 volunteers - TOTAL. We will have a few more volunteers in key locations once the ride starts and participants are more spread out. Yes, we can/will transport crew bags to the Kivett check at 24 miles (45 min hold) and Washoe check at 39 miles (which is only a 15 min hold). Crew is not needed at the Jumbo/Ophir Grade refreshment stop or the Cottonwoods vet check, please expect the same wonderful hospitality as always at those locations. All other checks are in camp (50 and 76 miles). If you need crew to come to assist with driving before/after the ride, please plan on booking them a room somewhere in Virginia City. If the state limit remains, no additional people beyond riders and approved volunteers who are on the list will be allowed in Ride Camp.

I'm so sorry to have to limit the entries this year, but am very thankful we are still able to host the ride. If you are not successful getting in this year, please plan on coming back to join us on September 18th, 2021!

Tahoe Rim Ride (Update - 6/24/2020)

Tahoe Rim Ride (July 25th) has been approved and is going forwards at this time.
However the ride is full.

NASTR 30/50/75 Ride - June 13, 2020 - Postponed

The NASTR Board voted last night, May 13th, to postpone the NASTR 30/50/75 Mile Ride currently scheduled for June 13th. It is our sincere hope to have this ride at a later date in the summer/fall. We are waiting for the state restrictions on group size to be lifted to allow at least 50 people to coincide with the new AERC guidelines. At this time, we do not foresee any changes for either the Tahoe Rim Ride (July 25th) or the Virginia City 100 (Sept 19th) and are proceeding with those events per schedule.

Rob Klix, RM:
"I will be contacting AERC ... and will get back to everyone once we get a future date to hold this ride. Thank you for your patience and the emails - I hope I answered most of them because there were a lot, so if I missed you, I apologize for that. Thank you."

NV Derby - April 6, 2020 - Cancelled

Sadly, because of restrictions placed on us by public lands due to Covid-19, this ride has been cancelled.

MINIMUM ENTRY FEE PER RIG IS $350.00 (This covers 2 riders in your rig):

Due to our limited space, we depend on ride-sharing to be able to continue to offer this ride. The minimum fee for a Rig Spot is $350.00 ($175.00 each for two Adult entries). If you do not have (or do not want) an additional rider in your rig, you may pay for the minimum entry fee (for 2 riders) and not bring a second rider with you. Checks will be cashed upon your entry selection. (If you included $350 (two entries) in your package and your “guest’s” entry is also selected, their check will be destroyed.

If your Total Rig Length exceeds 45’ you must get approval from management for that rig. If you are brinding 3 or more riders, length exceptions can be made, but must be approved by management.

Please read the additional information included in the ride rules and info before sending in your entry.
