Prize / Race Categories

CATEGORIES

The Chino Grinder is an event for experienced and well-trained endurance bicyclists. Riders will choose to ride either 25 miles, 44 miles, 62 miles or 115 miles. Although not technical, this is a challenging course with over 10,000 feet of climbing. If you have not completed a century ride or are new to gravel you should consider signing up for one of the shorter course options the first year to gauge your level of fitness and your ability to ride mixed surface roads. This will be an annual event so you will have the opportunity to try the 115 mile course next year.

***New this year we are offering a 25 mile community fun ride for those new to gravel riding who are interested in trying a gravel road cycling event***
