I'm driving to Park City w/ my bike on May 30 - most direct route is 80 the whole way through Reno - would like to break up the drive if there are any really good trails to hit on the way. I'll be bringing my do it all bike and like all types of riding not on pavement, but my favorite is probably techy chunk. I know N. Tahoe pretty well but anything past that is new territory to me.

I remember seeing a Trail Peeks (pretty sure it was Trail Peeks?) video where he picked up a bike that he had won at YT HQ when it was still in Reno, and then rode a nearby trail that looked incredible but it looked a bit Alpine-ish so it may be covered in snow right now - I looked back at the Trail Peeks videos and couldn't find it so maybe somebody knows what trail he rode in that video? Or any other trails between N. Tahoe and PC that you recommend for this time of year? Thanks!

Trailforks shows the Pequop Mtns between Wells NV and the UT state line.

You can get some badass fireworks (mortars, etc) in Battle Mountain.

Get a good Basque meal in Winnemucca or Elko.

As others have said there's not much after Reno. The main riding in Reno is on Peavine https://www.trailforks.com/region/p...vitytype=1&z=13.3&lat=39.55134&lon=-119.84643

You'll also hear people call it Keystone Canyon as that's the main parking spot.

The other zone is at the South end of town and is usually called Galena. https://www.trailforks.com/region/mount-rose/?activitytype=1&z=11.0&lat=39.33777&lon=-119.84703

Peavine is open high desert while Galena has more trees with a couple of creeks. If the weather has been wet or if it's a windy day, go to Galena. Galena is sheltered from the wind and handles the moisture better.

As mentioned above, stop for Basque food. In Reno go to Louis Basque Corner and in Elko, go the Star Hotel. It's family style and good food.
