Climb the Gunks for MS Gran Fondo

September 29 2019
Bloomingburg, New York ,USA

Thank you for your interest in our event. The Climb the Gunks for MS Gran Fondo is a fun and challenging event with the purpose of benefiting the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Every member and volunteer of our team donates their time and energy to benefit those who suffer with MS. 100% of the net proceeds of this event will go to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. 

In addition to the registration fee, all cyclists are requested to fundraise or donate a minimum of $50 to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

This ride takes place on the Shawangunk Mountain Range. Referred to affectionately by cyclists, hikers, climbers and locals as the "Gunks," this region offers an experience of great variety and beauty.

There are 3 routes for this event: The Gran Fondo, the Medio Difficile Fondo and the Medio Fondo. There is no Piccolo (small) Fondo since the least difficult of these 3 routes averages almost 100’ per mile. There are no small or easy rides on the Shawangunk Mountain Range. To view all 3 routes on the Ride with GPS website:

This is a ride not a race, but the Gran Fondo will have 5 timed sections. The long segment is over 1800’ of climbing and 5.1 miles long. The two Medio Fondos have timed section(s). Please see the event's website for further information. Use these timed sections to challenge yourself and your friends.

You’re welcome to bring your family and/or friends to the event. There are several suggestions posted on the links page of the event's website to keep them occupied while you ride. There is a small playground at the Mamakating Town Park. Your family and friends will be able to purchase food and drinks at the event.
