The Grand Fundo
The Grand Fundo is a yearly fundraising ride in Massachusetts' Pioneer Valley that benefits the JAM Fund, allowing the area's young people to discover their love of their bicycle. 100% of the proceeds from the Grand Fundo goes directly to the JAM Fund, allowing them to give out grants to young, motivated cyclists in the Pioneer Valley.
Over the course of the Grand Fundo's four years, the event has given nearly $50,000 to the JAM Fund, allowing them to help young cyclists achieve their goals. This past season, the JAM Fund helped get its first graduate to a professional team. The JAM Fund provides its riders not only with a budget to offset travel and equipment costs, but also with coaching and mentoring to help ensure they grow into mature, respectful cyclists and members of the community.
The JAM Fund is extremely active in the Pioneer Valley cycling community, volunteering at numerous community events and functions, leading group rides and acting as role models for the next crop of young Pioneer Valley cyclists.

Register for the Grand Fundo and sign up for one of the best days on a bike you'll have this season! The Grand Fundo comes in three different lengths and difficulties:
The Grand Fundo - 64 miles (20 on dirt) and 5300 feet of climbing. The Grand Fundo is the standard length, and is a very difficult ride. Expect to spend around 4 hours in the saddle. The Grand Fundo is NOT for novice riders.
The Grand Hundo - 84 miles (30 on dirt) and 7600 feet of climbing. Are you looking for a real challenge? The Hundo is so hard, it rides like 100 miles. Will add 1.5 hours to your ride. A real challenge for even the fittest riders.
The Mini Fundo - 42 miles (10 on dirt) and 2000 feet of climbing. Looking for a more entry level Fundo experience, or need to get back early? The Medio Fundo still includes the challenging King's Highway climb, but will shave off a hour from your ride. NOT for novice riders.
