Road Conditions

The Tour de Fronds is a back-country route, beautiful, but remote. The Forest Service and BLM roads are mostly paved and fine for road bikes, but some of the route is chip-seal.  We also recommend that you cycle with a partner and limit speed on the descents.


Tire Recommendations

Daphne Grove, Eden Valley Metric CenturyArrastra SaddleCruiser Loop and Agness Pass      

We recommend 25C to 32C tires as a minimum for comfort.




E-Bikes are allowed, but please be courteous to fellow riders who are self-powered when on the road.
