On June 14th we invite you to join us in Bend, OR where we will be taking the Gourmet Century off road. Riders will spend the day exploring the pine shaded single track of Bend’s classic cross-country mountain bike trails. Chef Chris DiMinno will be cooking alongside chefs Scott Ketterman and Jeff McCarthy to keep you well feed while you enjoy the high desert beauty of central Oregon.
This years Portland Gourmet Century will take place on July 26th and we have invited renowned chefs Jason French, Matt Christianson, and Patrick McKee to join Chris King chefs Chris DiMinno and Robert McSpadden in creating a delicious menu for this year’s French themed ride. Riders will head into Portland’s West Hills on a ~100 kilometer course designed to balance your riding efforts with a progressive selection of French victuals that will build to a delicious feasting crescendo at the Chris King factory.
On October 18th the Gourmet Century returns to the beautiful terrain of Northern
California. Our Sonoma event starts and ends in the small town of Healdsburg, CA and takes our riders through the storied vineyard covered hills of Sonoma County’s wine country. With the clean light of a Californian autumn as their beacon our riders will cover around ~100 kilometers of quiet back roads, seldom traveled climbs, and picturesque descents while feasting along the way on food made by some of the regions most respected chefs.
