Training for the Gran Fondo in Mammoth Lakes?

This summer has seen some pretty excellent weather conditions for long distance mountain biking. With a cool start to the season and some killer views there has been no better place to go than Mammoth Lakes. With the annual Gran Fondo starting on September 9th we thought we would discuss all things training and mountain biking. Read further for event details and info.

The Mammoth Gran Fondo on September 9th is known for one thing… incredible cycling. This top level mountain biking event will join in part with the Outside on the Inside celebration running from after Labor Day until the first snowfall. This is often considered a time of celebration for Mammoth locals and visitors as it is a time to let the air get crisp, watch the colors change, and let the crowds cool until snow ski season.

To make sure our readers are in the know we wanted to share some updates. The Gran Fondo will be a route throughout the town and region and over 70 of the roads will be closed to traffic. With this in mind there is no better time to explore via bicycle and on some of Mammoth’s awesome trails. Here at Adventure Sports Outpost we recommend renting mountain bikes on September 8th and enjoying them for two days without the worry of driving your car during the road closures.
