Grasshopper Adventure Series (G.A.S.) 2022 presents Humboldt Hopper as the finale for G.A.S 2022 , a 99-mile course with mixed pavement and gravel with two timed segments and 11,600 feet of elevation gain. Picked as one of our best gravel cycling events in California, the course is among the Old Growth redwoods, rolling ridges and remote coastline, two sections of dirt and a little known seasonal crossing of the Eel River. Along Monument Road to the top Bear Mountain you’ll be treated to epic Pacific Ocean views.
There will be emergency medical support and Rest Stops along the way for food and hydration. Registration is limited to 350 participants and all registrants receive sponsor giveaways, opportunity to win prizes from multiple sponsors, and hydration from Guayaki Organic Energy. The post-course party will be hosted on Dyerville Bar where all participants and supporters will be invited to enjoy a cold beverage, eat lunch, and even swim.
