The Bear Lake Classic Road Race also features a timed, but non-competitive Gran Fondo ride. You can have the ‘race experience’ but not have to worry about getting dropped by your teammates or fighting it out for position at the finish line.
Riders will have the option of riding one (50 miles) or two (100 miles) laps clockwise around Bear Lake.
The Bear Lake Classic Gran Fondo will start and finish at the same location as the Bear Lake Classic Road Race. Blue Water Beach is located at 2126 South Bear Lake Blvd – about 3.5 miles south of the main intersection in Garden City.
Gran Fondo riders will depart shortly after the last waive of competitive racers is on the road. An aid station will be set up at Mile 25ish along the North Beach Road and again at the start/finish line. Gran Fondo riders will receive a finish line meal along with the racers as well as a pair of Bike the Bear cycling socks and a t-shirt.
Results will be printed and posted near the finish line BBQ at Blue Water Beach.
