Prize / Race Categories

The Chino Grinder is an event for experienced and well-trained endurance bicyclists.  Riders will choose to ride either 44 miles, 62 miles or 115 miles.  Although not technical, this is a challenging course with over 9,700 feet of climbing. If you have not completed a century ride in the past, you should consider signing up for the 44 mile course option or the 62 mile course option the first year to gauge your level of fitness.  This will be an annual event so you will have the opportunity to try the 115 mile course next year.
