THE OVANDO GRAN FONDO - An Epic Off-Road Ride for the Missoula Symphony.

The Ovando Gran Fondo is a 57 mile loop for ‘cross bikes or mountain bikes on dirt roads in the spectacular Ovando area.  Two optional challenge loops will provide additional fun for hardcore thrill seekers, and will add 8 miles to the total loop.  This fully-supported benefit ride is the first one of its kind in the area!  It will be a physical challenge for the participants, and it will also be an inspirational journey across several miles of private ranchland not otherwise open to the public.

The Ovando Gran Fondo is a unique way for riders and sponsors to show their support and appreciation for the talented orchestra members, chorale members, conductors and staff who improve the lives of Western Montanans through the beauty and joy of music.
