REI presents The Mt Lemmon Gravel Grinder on October 26th in Oracle, AZ. The Gravel Grinder course offers 60/50/40 mile options---all take cyclists through the lush, semi-desert landscape that skirts the lower Santa Catalina Mountains and then ascend the backside of Mt Lemmon. Consisting of a mix of gravel/dirt and paved roads, the route winds through sections of the Coronado National Forest through cattle ranches, former mining operations, over narrow bridges and through dry river beds known as washes. Incredible views of the San Pedro River Valley and Galiuro Mountain Range are seen from virtually anywhere along the course. Join us for a family fun-filled weekend! Whether riding in the event or simply enjoying the laid back festival-like atmosphere, there's something for everyone. Camping and lodging are available at the venue or at nearby guest ranches & campgrounds. Come enjoy activities for the kids, explore local arts & crafts and see the latest industry innovations at the Bike & Gear Expo. Fantastic food vendors & live music will be on hand throughout the day. This is a weekend you won't want to miss! Registration link below. Register today---entry fees increase 9/9.
