Help Feed Hungry Mouths - Community Food Bank Grand Junction

Since its birth in the basement of the Presbyterian Church in 1978, the Community Food Bank Grand Junction (CFBGJ) has provided an emergency supply of quality food for residents in need across Mesa County. Thanks to its 41 committed volunteers and generous donors, in June the CFBGJ provided 3 days of meals to 1,378 Mesa County residents.

To help the CFBGJ, Epic Rides asks that every rider registered for The Grand bring two canned food items to donate. Donation bins will be located near the Epic Rides registration and check-in tents. Your donation will make a huge difference in the lives of needy residents across Mesa County.

The Unofficial Tour
Pre-Ride Weekend

Knowing what's around the bend can be the difference between riding and walking a section of trail. That's why on September 6-8, a group of folks will be getting together and pre-riding the four Tour courses. Note that this is an unofficial get together, meaning you bring your own insurance, support, sense of adventure and humor. Sound good? Get all the details here.
