Tehachapi GranFondo

We're gearing up for a great ride on Sept 19, 2015 with the 2nd Annual Tehachapi GranFondo.

A GranFondo is a long distance, mass start road cycling event.  They typically contain multiple routes ranging from 30-100 miles so that all types of riders can participate.

GranFondo’s are annual traditions in Italy and participation is open to recreational and amateur cyclists.  The idea of a Gran Fondo is a festive one in which there are large cycling expos and typically mass Italian themed pasta feeds for participants.  There are only a few GranFondo’s currently taking place in California in places like San Luis Obispo, Orange County, Monterey, Tahoe, etc.  Working with the Kern County Board of Trade, a GranFondo in Tehachapi could become a premier Kern County event, drawing thousands of participants.  

With four courses to choose from ranging from 16 to 98 miles, we've got something for everyone. Check out the courses in detail here and then be sure to register to ride...

Bicycle Master Plan

Click Here to Download Plan

This plan urges Tehachapi to take measurable steps toward the goal of improving every Tehachapi citizen’s quality of life.  Implementation of a bicycle/pedestrian master plan will aid in reducing potential traffic congestion, vehicle exhaust emissions, noise, and energy consumption.  The importance of developing a bicycle and pedestrian system that is attractive and inviting is a key element in preserving Tehachapi as a city where people want to live, work and visit.  The master plan encourages people of all ages to stay active and healthy.

Much of the system should be implemented over the next 5-20 years through road improvements and new development. The master plan is designed to meet the needs of bicyclists/pedestrians over the long term and help establish bicycling as a viable means of travel.
