The Hardman Classic took place yesterday October 1st under perfect weather conditions. Nearly 200 riders enjoyed riding on a mixed-terrain course with 65% tarmac and 35% fire roads that included 2 major climbs and descents. The Hardman Classic started and ended in Anaheim, CA with proceeds benefitting non-profits like Community Outreach Alliance and the Anaheim YMCA.
The riders used a combo of road bikes with bigger tires or gravel bikes to conquer the amazing routes that traverse the roads and the more rugged off-road dirt sections of Orange County.
The Hardman Classic featured two challenging routes to choose from including the Hardman Route (91 miles) and the shorter Working Man Route (60.71 miles).
