57865_az_seal_lg

Held each May the 108 mile Chino Grinder endurance cycling event starts and finishes on the dirt roads of the first capital of the Arizona Territory (founded 1863), the Town of Chino Valley. The Arizona Territorial Gravel Cup is a virtual trophy and was conceived to honor the historical irony of this also being the site of the first gravel event held in Arizona.
