Oregon Gran Fondo is an Oregone Triple Crown Series event produced by Mudslinger Events, a premier Northwest cycling event producer. The event is very popular and takes place annually on the first Saturday of June. What’s unique and draws so much attention is both the beauty of the routes as well as the route options. The event uniquely offers the choice of two all rode routes and two mixed surface routes. The road routes include 117 and 71 mile options with 6,600 and 4,400 feet elevation gain respectively. The mixed surface routes include 130 and 25 mile options with 8300 and 1800 feet elevation gain respectively. The longer Adventure Route includes 16 miles of fast and somewhat loose gravel. 35MM Tires are recommended.
The event takes place in Cottage Grove, Oregon just 20 minutes south of Eugene, Oregon. This is fully supported and well catered timed cycling event with friends the first weekend in June.
Mudslinger Events produces the Triple Crown series along with several other high quality events in the Northwest.
