Join us for the the 19th Annual Grasshopper Adventure Series. Before the terms "Gravel Grinder or Adventure Ride" existed we were riding Old Caz, Kruse Rd, King Ridge, Chileno Valley, Sweetwater and Skaggs. This series of 6 supported, timed rides, are on open roads and trails. Awards are given for top 3 male and female riders at all Hoppers. Back this year are series points for age groups. (10yr groups) You must finish Old Caz, Lake Sonoma and King Ridge to be eligible. Overall winners will be determined based on these three rides plus 2 of the other 3 Hoppers. If you do all the rides your lowest finish will be dropped. Lake Sonoma Mtb will have awards for all age groups. Athletes are challendged by rough pavement, gravel roads, difficult climbs and mind-blowing descents thoughout the most diverse and scenic roads in Sonoma County. For more information check out Grasshopper Adventure Series and make sure to read the "Rules of Engagement".
All rides are rain or shine. No refunds. Rider transfer fee 10$
