Of all the Gran Fondo rides we hit each year, the Mammoth Gran Fondo remains one of our favorites. Rare is the opportunity to mix scenic high altitude vistas and effort with open roads, hundreds of other riders, and a friendly mountain hamlet full of outdoor activities and good restaurants to spend a few days in.
New this year is the unique partnering between Mammoth Mountain and the town of Big Bear to create the California Pass Challenge for Gran Fondo riders who participate in both events…more reasons to ride!
THE MAMMOTH GRAN FONDO
With the start of the New Year odds are that you have created some exciting and challenging cycling goals for yourself. We invite you to add the Mammoth Gran Fondo to that list – what better way to challenge yourself then to take on our 102 mile Gran Fondo route that climbs over 6,500 feet at 8000 ft elevation!
The Mammoth Gran Fondo has three routes to choose from, all with enough challenge for any level of rider. Plus every route option comes with epic views of the Eastern Sierras, fully stocked rest stops, free event photos, post-event party and a pro-style mass start.
CALIFORNIA PASS CHALLENGE
If you are looking for a true “feather in the cap/helmet” option, then make sure to check out the California Pass Challenge! We have teamed up with the amazing crew from Big Bear Cycling to bring you a two event challenge. By completing routes in the Mammoth Gran Fondo and the Tour de Big Bear you will receive a special gift to add to your trophy wall and unique race plates for both events. Plus, with one registration fee for both events you save money and time….spend it training, you will need it!
