Bron Yr Aur Brewing Co.
12160 US Highway 12
Naches, WA 98937

9 am - Come join us for the second annual Gran Fondo of Yakima Valley and bask in the spring beauty of Central Washington. With over 5,500 feet of climbing over basalt ridges of the Yakima River Canyon one is afforded over 80 miles of high desert splendor punctuated by 21 miles of gravel nirvana. Bring plenty of grit and you will be rewarded with epic views of the dual spectacles of Mt Adams and Mt Rainier as well as the stunning scenery of the Yakima River Canyon. The ride will be well marked and supported with 2 aid stations stocked with food and hydration. If you have always wanted to tackle a Gran Fondo but been a bit intimidated by too much gravel this is the Fondo for you. If you are an experienced Fondo rider the terrain and distance will provide plenty of challenges. Event starting line will be at Bron Yr Aur Brewing Company!
