A larger number of mountain bikers came to the Beaver Dam Gravel Grinder ride on June 16.

The annual event, which had just a handful of riders in year one, hosted 55 this time. The ride included 35- and 45-mile loops, both tailored to advanced, intermediate, and beginning riders, and ended with a barbecue dinner in the late afternoon, following the ride.

Event organizer Dawn Andone, of Nevada State Parks, said the event went well and everyone had a wonderful time.

Sponsors of the event were Pine Tree Inn, The Y, Great Basin Foods, Knotty Pine, Green Valley Grocery, and Pioche Fire.
