Dirty Sundays is partnering with the Holbrooke Hotel to bring a new, exciting event to our small Victorian Town in Grass Valley, CA.
The Holbrooke is a newly renovated California State Landmark with a 170 year old history that started with the Gold Rush era.
Our long term goal is to create gatherings where all kind of cyclists - or future cyclists can meet in one place, get excited and learn about the culture and history of bicycles.
We want to connect guests with our first class bike trails, stunning nature and historical towns.
