2022 Mane Event Gravel Grinder

Foothills North and East of Sheridan, Wyoming

Why The Mane Event?
For 45 years, the Sheridan Sundowners Lions Club’s main fundraising event was a Thanksgiving Basketball Classic. COVID had other ideas and the local college canceled all sports except rodeo. We are thankful that they kept the rodeo in place, however, we had to pursue a new source of funding.Jordan LeDuc, owner of the Sheridan Bicycle Company had an idea – why not put on a Gravel Bike Event in Sheridan Wyoming in September? In 2021, the Mane Event Gravel Grinder was born.With the funds from this event, the Club will be able to continue with its projects to benefit Sheridan and the residents of our community.
