In August 2011, Trevor Oxborrow set a new record for crossing Nevada on a mt. bike pedaling the new bike friendly Great Basin Route along the American Discovery Trail!
OFFICIAL RECORD TIME
5 days, 1 hour and 32 minutes
Over 500 miles, 39,000' elevation gain, 16 ranges and about 90% dirt....that's awesome! Think you can beat it? Go right ahead. This is an open challenge to all mt. bikers, endurance athletes and record breaking, fame seekers!
Dream Big...Then Live It!
The American Discovery Trail is a coast to coast, non -motorized use recreational trail that crosses 15 states.
Mountain Bike Nevada has been working closely with the Nevada representatives of the ADT and is pleased to promote and present the new Great Basin Bike Route to the national ADT society as the first alternative bike route along the 6,800 mile trail.
