2011 SLO GranFondo

The 2nd Annual SLO GranFondo is set for this October! This year’s ride runs along the Central Coast and enables cyclists of all abilities to ride and support ALPHA and the Coalition. We will be receiving a portion of the proceeds from the event this year, and encourage you to invite your friends for this unique Central Coast cycling experience.

The ride offers three routes to accommodate a variety of riders:

  • GranFondo: over 100 miles on a challenging ride from SLO up the northern coast to Piedras Blancas and back
  • MedioFondo: about 50 miles along the same route as the GranFondo, but returns after reaching Cayucos
  • PiccoloFondo: a 25 mile loop through countryside that unfolds onto the Morro Bay estuary

Registration is now open, (registering after September 1st will not secure you a jersey until after the event).

Regardless of your ability level, a GranFondo is an unforgettable cycling experience. The Coalition will be parking bikes in the Mission after the ride and will receive a portion of the proceeds from the event! By riding you can support both ALPHA and the Coalition!
