The GRINDAH (50 miles) for more experienced riders looking for a challenging day in the Green Swamp. The SUPAH GRINDAH (100 miles) for people looking for a challenging endurance experience. The swamp is a great mixture of well-maintained gravel roads to loose sand.  There will be less than 3 miles of pavement in the 50-mile loop. The Baby Grindah will never see a car or pavement.
