The Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship put on another first class event when they played host to the Lost & Found Gravel Grinder & Bike Ride this weekend at Lake Davis, California. Sunny skies & dusty roads were the theme of the day for the first event in the Lost Sierra Triple Crown. Riders departed from Coot Bay with the option of a Long (45mi), Longer (65mi), or Longest (100mi) course to follow. The Longest option featured 100 miles of roads, 65% dirt, and over 6500' of elevation gain.
