About the RED BLUFF Gran Fondo
RED BLUFF proudly showcases the scenic, pine wood landscapes of southwest Mississippi, on seriously quiet, scenic roads that will give you the impression of what Pioneer Travellers experienced in the Mississippi Territory over 200 years ago.
There are three distances for all abilities; the 38 mile Petit Fondo and the 65.1 mile Metric Century each boasts three Rest Stops while the 103.5 mile Gran Fondo has four Rest Stops to keep everyone properly fueled up.
RED BLUFF’s Gran Fondo and Metric Century roads are very classic Deep South from smooth to very rough and grippy; from narrow with no center line to highways with rattle traps. Be prepared. The Petit Fondo route has less challenging elevation and more forgiving road surface than to Gran and Century.
The Bike Crossing will provide a rolling Neutral Support vehicle. Lawrence County Fire and EMT will provide Corner Marshals. There’s food and drink available after the ride too.
