It was amazing riding with you! please come back in 2020 for another season of incredible riding.



The short, easy paced 18-mile training rides are an amazing way to build your base fitness if you are just getting into cycling or had a long period of hibernation. The 42-mile moderate pace rides are a great way to begin developing your endurance. The 62-mile training ride offer just the tight volume and intensity to prepare you for the Gran as we get closer to ride day. Easy pace and moderate pace rides are no-drop.

Pacing will be determined by the participants abilities and we might split into different pace groups based on demand. On the other end of the spectrum, we will be offering later this year higher intensity rides designed by pro coaches for cyclists who signed up for the inaugural Estremo route. We will make water and food stops along the way. Stops will be determined by the leader based on the route’s specific distance and difficulty..
