Grinduro California!


Name of Park or Public Land:
Plumas National Forest (Quincy, CA)

Number of participants:
750

Ride Description:

This is my fifth consecutive Grinduro - it's AWESOME!

Gravel Road Race + Mountain Bike-Style Enduro = one long loop of pavement & dirt, where finishing times aren't based on overall loop time, but four timed segments (each roughly five-to-ten minutes). Grinduro is a celebration of cycling with as much emphasis on the fun as the ride, with excellent food, an impressive display of art and incredible handmade bikes, live music, camping and a festival atmosphere.

The course is a serious affair (7,500-feet of climbing in 60 miles) but the Grinduro isn't meant to be a sufferfest. We've linked together some of our favorite roads in a quiet corner of California's Sierra Nevada Mountains. The course features a mix of surfaces (smooth pavement, gravel and hard-packed dirt) with two main climbs, one long valley and two world-class descents. One descent includes a fast and flowy singletrack trail. The other descent trends downhill for 30 miles!
