Gran Fondo Ephrata

March 27 2022
Ephrata, Washington, USA
Status: The date for the event has not yet been confirmed.

The Gran Fondo Ephrata course is designed to give riders a glimpse of some very remote, out of the way parts of central Washington.

The course will for the most part go out Baird Springs Rd and return on Palisades Rd. It is designed to give riders a glimpse of some very remote, out of the way parts of central Washington. In the spirit of remote and rustic central Washington, much of the route is primitive gravel roads. There will be at least one well stocked aid station at approx. the half way point as well as a few sag wagons for additional assistance.

You will receive a super cool limited Gran Fondo Ephrata t-shirt, a police escort through town, a well thought out, and well marked course to ride, a well stocked aid station to refuel at mid ride, and a hot meal to refuel post ride. We will also post the times of all finishers for bragging rights.

Gears/Bike: With so many variable course conditions it is hard to say what’s right or wrong. Road, cross, or mtb, any one will work, but all will have a disadvantage at some point. Personally I would use a cx bike with some beefy road tires. There will be lots of climbing so plan accordingly. There will be a few sag wagons and an aid station, but it’s a good idea to be somewhat self sufficient. Weather is always something to consider this time of year. I would love to say it’s going to be sunny and 55 degrees, but it could just as easily rain or snow. Bring on the adventure baby!
