About This Activity

MAMMOTH GRAN FONDO - A TOP-RATED GRAN FONDO BIKE RIDE For 21 years the High Sierra Fall Century has been a top-level cycling event in an amazing landscape.  For 2015, we are converting the event to the Mammoth Gran Fondo which gives all Fondo participants ride timing versus the whole Fondo field as well as by age and gender.  As high-end and top-rated Fondos go, we believe the Mammoth Gran Fondo is one of the best road cycling events anywhere in the United States and at $89, it may also be the best Gran Fondo value anywhere in the world!

As the old High Sierra Fall Century, this ride was chosen as a "Top-Ten Century" bike ride by Bicycling Magazine (June 2012) for its "Jaw-Dropping Vistas," and considered on-par with Levi's Gran Fondo in Santa Rosa, CA, by Road Bike Action Assistant Editor, Neil Shirley. The Mammoth Gran Fondo is a "Bucket-List" ride that takes you along the spectacular east side of the High Sierra mountains with awesome views of the Sierra Nevada Range, Mono Lake and the White Mountains.

Situated to the east and south of Yosemite National Park in Mono County, CA, the Mammoth Gran Fondo bike ride traces an amazing route through what has been called by some "the accidental national park."  Enjoy beautiful riding along this serene 102 mile route that includes good pavement, very few stop signs and minimal traffic.

The 42 mile "Piccolo" and 70 mile "Medio" short course options offer a slightly later and more relaxed starting time, but equally spectacular scenery on great roads.  Your ride pictures are free at the finish area at "The Village" in Mammoth Lakes and don't miss the great after-ride buffet meal, entertainment and the Mammoth Gran Fondo Expo.  At 3PM on Friday, September 11th, the Mammoth Mountain Prologue Time Trial may be unique in the world of Gran Fondo rides.  The Prologue Time Trial is open to everyone and will include an after-ride party and awards ceremony Friday night.  Give it a try and test yourself against your friends and the mountain!    Register today!
