OH Snap! Registration is Full?!?
Sorry Brah! We burstin' at the seams!
Ride interest this year has been off the charts!
To keep things small, manageable and FREE, we had to put a cap on participants this year, with some big changes planned for 2021
The current lineup will be notified of the cap this year, and will be pressured to let me know if they decide to back out.
NO SHOWS WILL BE RIDICULED AND CHASTISED PUBLICLY
If you want to be on a wait list, fill out the info below and start praying to the gods!
So, whats the deal with this thing anyways?
You must be new here…let me break it down:
What? - It's Cinco de Grindo!
WHAT? - Its a free back-country race in Boulder County, with tons of climbing, all sorts of different terrain, various checkpoints, tastefully themed, and a ton of fun on your bike!
Sick!! - No, its actually quite healthy.
When? - Saturday, May 2nd 8:00am-ish
Where? - Kettle and Spoke Brewery in Boulder
What Should I Expect? - A free and fun event with riders of all abilities, on a challenging route that hits almost every type of riding surface. Think 60ish miles with 7k feet of climbing. (Link). Race it, ride it, survive it, meet new buds, enjoy the checkpoints, and just have fun! Come prepared for a few stationed checkpoints with water and other beverages, prizes for no reason whatsoever, and a free taco bar at the finish!
Is it really free? - Heck yeah it is! Cycling is expensive enough as it is already, so this one will always be FREE! (Donations are always appreciated, but totally unnecessary.)
Y Tho? - Who cares? Riding your bike is fun! I like riding my bike too! Don't take it so seriously..
What should I bring? - A Bike probably - Food and drink for a few hours on said bike - Some cash for beers afterwards at Kettle and Spoke- A friend, or just make new ones
I have questions. - OK FINE - Send me an email below!
- 2020 Route -
The 2020 Route for Cinco de Grindo is still TBD - But expect the same or MORE than last year.
There is lots of construction on the Boulder Creek path and 119, with no set date for when the new connector to Chapman will be open.
You never know how long it takes to get this work done!
Expect 60-75 miles of riding with long, sustained climbs, and long, sustained descents and lots of overall vert.
This was last year's route:
Probably something like this, but more.
I'll keep ya posted.
