This is a HARD ride and is intended for experienced cyclists only.
You will receive a super cool limited Gran Fondo Ephrata souvenir, a police escort through town, a well thought out, and well marked course to ride that will leave you hooked on gravel, a well stocked aid station to refuel at mid ride, and a hot meal to refuel post ride. We will also post the times of all finishers for bragging right
50 GFE Medio, half the calories, all of the flavor! The full Overen road is a treat, and the chill roll out leading up is nice as well. But don’t be fooled, this is not a lame watered down version, lots of gravel (20 miles) and a fair amount of climbing (2700′) will hit the mark. There will be an aid station mid way and a hot meal waiting at the finish.
80 Back to the classic course you all know and love (conditions permitting). The course is designed to give riders a glimpse of some very remote, out of the way parts of central Washington. It’s only March and 4700′ of climbing will hurt, plus approximately 30 of the 80 mile route is on gravel roads. There will be one well stocked aid station at approx the half way point as well as a few sag wagons for additional assistance.
