Where to Ride

  • JAM Fund Grand Fundo tomorrow! – Saturday, July 16, five hundred cyclists are expected to turn out for the one-day bike ride through the scenic Pioneer Valley in Western Massachusetts. The event is a fundraiser for the JAM Fund cycling development program. Four-time and current U.S. National Cyclocross Champion Jeremy Powers will lead the ride, which starts at 9:30 a.m. from Black Birch Vineyard in Southampton. Participants will have the option to ride one of three distances: 39, 65 or 85-miles. The long loop should take about four hours, and after the ride, participants will be treated to a delicious barbecue where all the food is locally harvested and cooked on site. JamCycling.org
