A portion of the proceeds will go to Ross Dillon, Matt Wilson Memorial Scholarship and the El Molino Mtb Team.
Looks like we’ll have temps in the low 80’s tomorrow, why wouldn’t you come join us? Pre-reg closes today at 6:00 PM. There will be day-of reg for +$10. This is a unique Grasshopper for several reasons; not least of which is the start. We will officially begin at Riverfront Park on Eastside Rd. Riders can roll out on their own or together by 9:30 from the Occidental Community Center. We’ll have a brief riders meeting and roll at 10:15 from River Front. Safety is always our number 1 concern when planning these adventures. This start will allow us to cross the busiest roads carefully before the official start, and finish close to Occidental.
For veteran riders in Sonoma County beware as our already challenging road are out to bite ya! If you are new to these roads, proceed with extreme caution. Fascinating that the County can pay to have the asphalt dumped and raked but make no effort to pack it down….I think I’d prefer an open hole, this way we would at least not have the false sense of security of the look of fresh pavement. We’re going to have a fantastic day out there, everyone ride safe and look out for each other. Remember, the roads WILL be open and there WILL be vehicles. We have permits to hold the event on these roads but there is no road closure. All riders must OBEY the rules of the road.
