                                      *** ALERT OF CHANGES FOR  2017 ***

For the 2017 Grand Tour, circumstances beyond our control have forced us to scale down the event to a single Double Century route which mirrors the Dead of Winter one; the Lowland route from the Start to Ojai, and the Highland route from Ojai to the Finish.  
The Lowland double century (200 miles) spends the most time along the comfortably cool coast. It travels up Pacific Coast Highway to Port Hueneme in Ventura County, inland to Moorpark, back out to the coast at Ventura, inland to Ojai.   From Ojai head directly out to Rincon point via scenic Lake Casitas, then south along the same route as the lowland double. Total elevation gain is about 6,500 feet. At the end of June, the weather can be very hot inland, so riders should be prepared with adequate hydration and electrolytes.

Please note: The above map may not be exact accounting for possible last minute road closures and detours.

We sincerely apologize for these 11th hour changes but we are determined to hold an event in 2017 regardless of circumstances.  For full details of what is changed in 2017 and why, please open the link below and carefully read the Grand Tour 2017 Updates Letter in its entirety…
