About the Grand Fundo

In the cycling world, a gran fondo is a massive group ride/race, that can attract riders numbering in the thousands, encompassing all ages and ability levels. The Grand Fundo removes all the racing aspects from the ride but keeps all the all the fun. The route will take about four hours for most riders. The route is mostly dirt roads. We will have fully stocked rest stops where you can refuel and hydrate. There will be support riders and follow cars but they cannot access the trails and so please bring proper tools to fix a flat. Immediately after the ride, we hope you’ll stay and hang out with us for music and a delicious post-ride cookout, our prize drawing and more ice cream!

About the Mini Fundo

The Mini Fundo features the same challenging beginnings of the Grand Fundo but will get you back home more quickly. If you are looking for 2.5 to 3.5 hours of riding but aren’t sure you can survive the full Fundo, then the 29-mile Mini Fundo is for you. Once you return, snacks will be available until our barbecue. The Mini Fundo is by no means a walk in the park. Over the course of 29 miles, the Mini Fundo will climb over 2400 feet and ride through technical sectors of double track. 

About the Adventure Route

This route is 85 miles, which means about five or six hours and includes technical sectors that may be a hike-a-bike for some. 40+c tires are a must. 

About the JAM Fund

JAM is a registered 501c-3 organization created by Jeremy Powers, Alec Donahue and Mukunda Feldman, good friends brought together through their passion for cycling. JAM's mission is to help motivated young cyclists reach their potential both on and off the bike, while not being limited by finances. This is reached through close mentoring and involvement in the cycling community. The JAM Fund is proud to award grants to young cyclists in and around Massachusetts who show enthusiasm, determination and desire to be their best. It's also our goal to showcase some of the amazing cycling that the Pioneer Valley offers! Every dollar raised through the Fundo goes directly to the JAM fund. We look forward to seeing everyone there!

Helmets and proper riding clothing are mandatory!
