Register NOW for the 2021 Mammoth Gran Fondo
Come and soak up some of “the best cycling in California” on September 11th. You’ll experience incredible scenery, near empty roads, first class support and seriously cool vibes!
For those who are familiar it’s no surprise to hear that the Mammoth Gran Fondo was chosen as a "top-ten" bike ride by Bicycling Magazine for its "jaw-dropping vistas".
So we’ll let you in on a secret that not all cyclists will want you to know about …
The Mammoth Gran Fondo takes riders along the east side of Yosemite and the High Sierra with incredible views of the Sierra Nevada, Mono Lake, and White Mountains.
It traces an amazing route through what has been called by some "the accidental national park." Enjoy beautiful riding along this serene route that includes good pavement, very few stop signs and virtually no traffic.
75% of the Gran Fondo route is closed to through traffic; matching the incredible scenery with the appropriate calmness.
For 26 straight years the Mammoth Mountain Community has guided riders on one of the most scenic rides in North America!
Views of high Sierra peaks, past ancient volcanic craters, alongside an ancient alkaline sea and bubbling geothermal hot springs, “there’s no other ride like it in the USA”.
NEW for 2021 is a vendor village at the Footloose Sports parking lot on Friday from 8am-8pm. Come and check out industry and local vendor booths. Vendors will also be set up Saturday in the Village at Mammoth to make your post-race experience as fun as ever!
Three distances for all Abilities
There are three distances available to suit all abilities of cyclists, ranging from the very doable 42 mile Piccolo Fondo to the more challenging 70 mile Medio Fondo.
The 102 mile Gran Fondo contains 6,643 feet of total climbing at elevation, and up to six feed stations with full SAG and technical aid that provide the level of support you’d expect of any world-class bike ride. Light on-course lunch for Gran Fondo and Medio riders and clothing drop at rest stops.
Then there’s the famous after party with food, live music and “recovery beverages” of all flavors including Sierra Nevada beer, a tradition in its own right!
There’s also free photos of you after your ride to remind you of your visit.
In true North American Gran Fondo format, all three distances are electronically timed adding that competitive element should you want to go for the fastest time? There’s also a team prize too, minimum of 3 riders per team and tandems are welcome.
Official 2021 Mammoth Gran Fondo Kit
Crafted by VR7, the high quality jersey displays part of the iconic Minaret mountain range, one of the most breath-taking vistas on the ride. It also proudly sports the logo of Mammoth Mountain Community Foundation as a constant reminder that every pedal stroke is helping a youth in this community.
