The North Fork Grizzly Century, Metric, Loop the Lake and Growling Grizzly Gravel Metric

The North Fork Community, the Sierra Vista Scenic Byway Association and the Fresno Cycling Club are excited to present the 27th Annual Grizzly Century & rides. This ride is the major fund raiser for the North Fork Community and the Sierra Vista National Scenic Byway. Over the past several years this beautiful area has been ravaged by forest fires. Although there are vast areas of burn scares they have opened up new vistas to what in the past were hidden by the trees. Come and spend the day taking in scenic vistas from the unique vantage point that only a cyclist can claim. The community really needs our support to help deal with what was left by the fires. "Profits" earned go toward improvements of the Scenic Byway, to town restoration, and other projects that benefit our mountain community. 

IF RIDE IS CANCELED DUE TO FIRES OR SIGNIFICANT INCREASE IN COVID SPREAD, FULL REFUNDS WILL BE ISSUED TO REGISTERED RIDERS.

CHECKIN: Will be available on Saturday Oct 1 from 5:30 am to 9:00 am at North Fork Town Hall.
