The Gravel Grinder Tour is a 29-mile ride through the Fort Ord National Monument on roadways and trails taking place on Saturday, April 13, 2019. All levels of cyclists are welcome and riders will receive mechanical and medical support, feed zones, and post-ride complimentary lunch and massage.
We are excited to have you join us for the 29-mile Gravel Grinder Tour and we hope that this recreational ride will be the highlight of your 2019 season. Enjoy the company of other riders while you savor the scenic vistas of the historic Fort Ord National Monument. Riders of all levels are welcome to participate in the Gravel Grinder Tour.
Because Tours are untimed recreational rides, new riders can feel comfortable to ride at their own pace while experienced cyclists can push themselves to their limits. The Gravel Grinder Tour is unique in that it takes place during the four-day Sea Otter Classic festival.
All participants receive a four-day pass to the festival, which includes an expo with over 450 exhibitors, an international food court and beer garden, and tons of bike demos, stunt shows and live entertainment. Bring the whole family as kids can take advantage of races, carnival games and a bike track just for them.
