    Event Description:

    Ready to Earn Your Badge? Plan to “ride like a pro for a day” as you take on the Gila Monster Gran Fondo and Become Gila Proven.
    October 14, 2017, Silver City, New Mexico

    You can wear the badge, “Gila Proven,” after you have joined us this year’s Gila Monster Gran Fondo ride on October 14, 2017, in the gorgeous cool mountains of Silver City, New Mexico. Set your goal, have lots of fun, and enjoy a weekend away, while you become “Gila Proven” with courses covering 115-78-40 mile journeys. From the amateur and recreational cyclists to those avid cyclists, the Gila Monster

    Gran Fondo is fun yet has a competitive edge, too.

    The course follows the iconic Tour of the Gila “Gila Monster” road race, covering some of the most stunning routes in New Mexico. For the Gran Fondo-115 and Medio Fondo-78 rides will start and finish in Silver City, at Gough Park. For the shorter Nano Fondo-40, riders will start at Camp Thunderbird, with shuttle service from town, and finish at Gough Park.

    Look forward to a first-class experience. Roving sag wagons and well-appointed rest stations will provide extra support to get you to that finish line and enhance your experience. Don’t miss the chocolate and
    strawberry fondue at the top of the Sapillo climb and other special perks along the way. As you roll into the finish line in downtown Silver City, join the day-long festivities happening at Gough Park for friends and family, then head to the fondue party at Little Toad Creek Brewery. Come early to join the special dinner event on Friday night with celebrity guest, course highlights, and riding in the Gila tips. Stay late to take in all that Silver City has to offer as the Red Dot Art Fest event is also happening in Silver City where visitors can tour galleries and studios, even participate in workshops, lectures, and view demonstrations.

    Whether riding with your friends or racing your friends, become “Gila Proven” in one of the most challenging, but fun rides anywhere. You might even find yourself on a podium with a 1st , 2nd or 3rd place finish for men and women for each course length. There is even a team of 10 first place trophy per
    course length, once all 10 cross the finish line. All riders, families, and friends welcome. For more information call 575-590- 2612.

    Registration includes event beer glass, t-shirt, fondue party Saturday night at Little Toad Creek Brewery and Distillery, 20% off coupon for Saturday night dinner at the fondue party, 2 free pints of beer, and a great SWAG bag. For an additional $30 per person, enjoy an exceptional pasta full dinner Friday with celebrity guest and Friday evening activities.
