Tommorrow Saturday February 26th 2011 Lake Mountain will be holding their second annual Granite Grind. This event attracted almost 200 mountain bike riders in its inaugural year.
For riders that entered last year there is a couple of new kilometres of track to challenge yourself on and the longer three lap option for those wanting to exhaust themselves even more.
The Granite Grind is a great day out for all the family, with spectator viewing points, great music and Heights Bar and Bistro open to sit down, relax, enjoy a meal and soak up the atmosphere.
There is over 30km of cross country ski trails to explore on foot, including a 4km interpretative walk providing insight into the recovery and regeneration of the alpine landscape.
Sponsors for the event include the Upwey Community Bendigo Bank Branch, Croydon Cycleworks, Rochford Wines and Murrindindi Cycle Club.
On the same day as the Granite Grind CycleSport Victoria will run the third Marysville Lake Mountain Challenge, a recreational ride with various course options, including the gruelling climb between Marysville and Lake Mountain.
