Venue Atmosphere

The Grizzly 100/70 has become an international attraction for mountain bikers from all over the world.  With some of the most challenging single-track, double-track, and fire road climbs and descents, participants love to challenge themselves and others on this high altitude course (at 7000-8500 feet elevation).  The Radford Climb has made a name for itself as one of the most dreaded 5 mile climbs in Southern California.  The Grizzly 100k NUE Century Challenge and the 70-75k NUE Marathon Challenge welcome racers and riders to Big Bear Lake, CA.  The Big Bear MTB Gran Fondo with sport rides of 20/30/50k rounds out the day’s events.  We also welcome the Ride to Recovery Century Challenge, a veterans program, helping to save lives by restoring hope and purpose. Astonishing aid stations, friendly volunteers, and lots of local enthusiasm for this event help set the tone for the Big Bear Cycling Festival, a week-long series of rides and events for both mountain and road cyclists.

Anyone that calls themselves a mountain bike racer should plan on doing an NUE event, this IS mountain bike racing!" David Turner, 2016 third place Masters Division
