Heart of Gold Festival

Pedal power becomes people power on October 7th, as hundreds of experienced bike riders compete in the third annual Heart of Gold Gravel Race to raise funds for youth mental wellness. Greet the riders as they cross the finish line and stick around for the Heart of Gold Festival, a celebration of wellness featuring great food and brews, live local bands, a Kid Zone with lawn games, a bike rodeo, and an outdoor recreation and wellness Vendor Village including businesses and organizations focused on recreation and youth mental health. 

This free event is open to people of all ages!

The festival directly follows the Heart of Gold Gravel Race, a grueling bike ride that starts and finishes at the Eric Rood Administration Center, with a 46- to 70-mile gravel ride through the Yuba River Canyon in between. Proceeds from the race go to local organizations working to support youth mental wellness, including Bright Futures for Youth, Child Advocates of Nevada County, Tahoe Forest Health System Foundation, and Youth Bicyclists of Nevada County.
