102 Miles
Fun, challenging, and breathtaking! With a start and finish elevation of 8,074 feet and 6,643 feet of total climbing, this beautiful ride is challenging, but manageable. Although there’s plenty of uphill climbs on this very scenic route, they are nicely spaced-out with long, fast descents in between to recharge you for the next one. Riders will receive full SAG and tech support, as well as six fully-stocked aid stations with plenty of fluids, snacks, and a specially-themed treat at each stop. Mid-way through the ride, a light lunch is provided at the Black Lake stop. At the finish line, a scrumptious buffet, live entertainment and expo await at the post-ride party at the Village at Mammoth.

70 Miles
Tougher than the Piccolo, more manageable than the 102 mile Gran Fondo, the Medio is a great choice for the rider who has some miles under their chamois, but doesn’t want to attempt a three-digit distance. Medio riders roll at of The Village at 8:30am in a mass start. After a brief climb up to the Scenic Loop, riders will gorge on a delicious descent for several miles, before banging a right onto the bike path that parallels highway 395. Mostly flat, the biggest challenge of this part of the ride is keeping at least one-eye on the eight foot wide bike path. The epic scenery of the Eastern Sierra makes that tough. Riders will continue to Crowley, where they will enjoy the first rest stop that’s fully stocked with complimentary snacks and drinks. Post-refuel, riders will double back and start heading north up and hanging a right on Benton Crossing Road, knocking out a few more miles before the second rest stop. After grabbing some food and drink, riders will head towards Watterson Summit, which is a moderate 4% to 5% with a very short 9%-10% pitch near the top, which is manageable albeit challenging for just about every rider. At the summit, you’ll realize you’ve hit scenic pay-dirt: the perspective from the top of this climb is one of the best in Central California. Soak in what Bicycling mag described as “Jaw-Dropping Vistas” before heading back down the fast and fun descent, grabbing some snacks at the final rest area, and completing the final section that’s equal parts challenging and rewarding. Pull into The Village and trade out your clipless shoes for your party shoes! Post-ride there’s going to be a live band, Expo, and a buffet, which is included with your entry.

42 Miles
Interest in the Piccolo? Awesome. It’s such a fun and do-able course! During the ride you’ll see amazing scenery, challenge yourself, and meet a great bunch of fellow riders. And you’ll burn plenty of calories that will need replacing at the after-party that includes a delicious buffet. The most manageable distance at the Gran Fondo starts at 8:30am in The Village, Piccolo riders roll out in a mass start. Starting with a short climb, riders will are soon treated with a fun descent to Highway 395, before heading south in a bike lane that’s eight feet wide. Riders will be treated to amazing views of expansive vistas, a great perspective on the Eastern Sierra, and forests and forests filled with Jeffrey Pines on their way to Crowley Lake an awesome rest-stop that’s stocked with plenty of complimentary treats to help you refuel. Post-snack, the ride will double back towards Mammoth Lakes. There will be a second and final rest stop before returning to The Village for the post-ride party.
