The North Fork Grizzly Century is Back

The Fresno Cycling Club along with the community of North Fork and the Sierra Vista Scenic Byway Association are partnering to bring back the 24th Grizzly Century ride. This ride is the major fund raiser for the North Fork Community and the Sierra Vista National Scenic Byway. Come and spend the day taking in scenic vistas from the unique vantage point that only a cyclist can claim. "Profits" earned go toward promotion and improvement of the Scenic Byway, to town restoration, and other projects that benefit our mountain community.
