The first ride of the season. Get your riding legs back and join us for a tough but fun 90, 65, or 35 mile bike ride. This year we are adding a different game with prizes at every rest stop. Make it to the top of Utah Hill for the big prizes.
Our first event of the year, Mesquite Madness takes advantage of mild temperatures in Mesquite, Nevada. When other places are still frozen, Mesquite is basking in sunshine, giving you perfect riding conditions—without the crazy traffic and chaos you’ll find in bigger cities.
You’ll enjoy sunshine and scenery on the Citizen’s Class (35 mile), Metric Century (65 mile), and Top of The Hill (90 mile) as they loop through Mesquite, and even a bit of Arizona. The Metric Century and Top of The Hill also allow you to experience nature’s full splendor as they flow through nearly untouched parts of Arizona and Utah!

Come on out. Bring your family. Bring your friends. Join us for Mesquite Madness!
• Event is capped at 500 riders—so register early!
• Fully stocked rest stops, a great lunch, and more!
• You’ll receive a custom Mesquite Madness Event Medal with your registration
• You’ll get a custom Mesquite Madness T-shirt with your registration
• A distance to please every rider with 35, 65, & 90 mile options
• Enjoy warm spring weather and plenty of sunshine
• Roving Sag support
• Only 60 Minutes North of Las Vegas
• Just 4.5 Hours South of Salt Lake City
