2017 Grasshopper Adventure Series #2 Chileno Valley
The second event of the 2017 Grasshopper Adventure Series escaped the recent atmospheric river rains and had sunny beautiful weather. But that didn’t make the Chileno Valley Hopper that much easier. What was easier was the option to take a shorter route of 53 miles and 4947 feet of climbing. There was still the original long route of 80 miles and 6384 feet of climbing. Any that took the long option suffered greatly on the final climb up “Joy” Rd after 78 miles.
Always fun and never easy, the ‘Hoppers are a great NorCal tradition.
