Oregon Gran Fondo

June 02 2018
Cottage Grove, Oregon, USA

Join Rolf Prima and Co-Motion Cycles for the The Oregon Gran Fondo.  Start/Finish at 7th & Main Streets in historic downtown Cottage Grove, just 20 minutes south of Eugene, Oregon.

This event showcases rural South Willamette Valley communities and ancient Siuslaw National Forest scenery and roads.  From Bohemia Park the Gran and Medio routes head west to the village of Lorane and from there continue west deep into the Siuslaw and Smith River watersheds.  Low-traffic rural and forest roads. Hills, rivers, vistas, more hills, good eats and more.

Start/Finish, Expo, Beer Garden (with free post-ride meal and brew) & Raffle in historic downtown Cottage Grove. OBRA sanctioned. Individual & team racers and recreational riders. Chip timing with timed hill climb! . The Oregon Gran Fondo features the legendary roads and climbs of the ancient Siuslaw National Forest and showcases some of the Willamette Valley's prettiest scenery and rural communities. One event, three routes to choose from: Gran (long) 117 miles; Medio (medium) 71 miles.

Gran Fondo's traditionally are "big rides" that while technically aren't races are still ridden in a competitive or "personal best" style. The Oregon Gran Fondo (as well as the other two Triple Crown events) is a fully sanctioned OBRA/Oregon Bicycle Racing who supports all levels of cyclists. 

At the Oregon Gran Fondo you will find ex-professionals and elite racers lined up side by side with members of the local touring club, families, and anyone wishing to celebrate a glorious, challenging day on the bike. Family members line the start/finish and cheer on their favorite riders . While some choose to ride fast or test their endurance, or seek a milestone achievement, the Gran Fondo is a mass start event designed to draw the community together and give everyone a chance to enjoy the fun of riding a bike on the same course as the pros. It is truly a ride for everyone!
