Old Ephraim was the biggest, baddest and gnarliest grizzly to roam the forests above Bear Lake. Old Ephraim’s Bike Ride is a gravel grinder worthy of its namesake.

Starting and finishing in Garden City near the shores of Bear Lake, Old Ephraim’s Bike Ride is a timed, competitive race along the forest roads and trails the loom beyond the horizon. With three distance options (75 miles, 62 mile and 30 miles) cyclists will find a ride for their needs – but they’re all going to hurt just a little bit with challenging climbs rewarding you with incredible views.

With more than 9,000 feet of vertical gain over 75 miles, our longest course travels from Bear Lake to Hardware Ranch and loops past Old Ephraim’s grave before returning to the finish line
