Goodyear Bicycle Tires GraVAIL Grinder
New for this year is our non-competitive mixed road/gravel group ride, the Goodyear Bicycle Tires GraVAIL Grinder.
A fully supported road ride, GraVail takes riders from check-in at Mountain Plaza at 10am Sunday morning for a scenic 45-mile spin through Minturn, Red Cliff and then Shrine and Vail Passes. Riders can expect two fully stocked aid stations, breathtaking views and an unconventional riding experience that just might open some new frontiers for you.
This ride is manageable on a standard road bike, but 35-40c tires or higher are strongly recommended. Mountain bikes are welcome, gravel and ‘cross bikes encouraged (hmmm…wonder if anyone’s demoing any of those rare beasts?)
So grab your casual pals or a few of the local hammers and prepare for a great day among turning leaves and great friends. Your registration fee of $75 gets you a GraVail tee, plus a post-race meal and beer (or two).
