New England’s Fun-est Gravel Event
The history and tradition of the JAM Fund and the Northampton Cycling Club are intertwined. The NCC is proud to support the JAM Fund throughout the year, but especially during its major fund raising event, the Grand Fundo. As the name of the event implies, the event is fun. The gravel routes cover the beautiful scenery of Western Massachusetts. Along the way, you most likely will encounter ice cream trucks and former professional riders at the rest stops. At the end, we have a party to celebrate the cycling community, hold raffles, and award prizes and grants to up and coming JAM riders.
