The 2nd Annual Cafe Velo Tri-Lakes GranFondo is May 4th, 2014 in Monument, Colorado. The ride starts at the at the Pikes Peak Brewery. The 22 mile loop covers a scenic section of Northern El Paso County and is the perfect opportunity to tune-up for your longer/century ride in June (like the Elephant Rock Ride, for example).
Choose from 1 loop (22 miles) all the way up to 5 loops (110 miles and 9110 feet of elevation gain). This is a well-supported ride with volunteers and police support at key intersections. Well stocked aid stations every 10-12 miles with food, hydration, and mechanical support.
Participants receive a cool commemorative tech t-shirt, a cycling water bottle, support and aid stations during the ride, and food and drink coupon for nourishment after the ride provided by Bird Dog Barbecue and Pikes Peak Brewing Company! A portion of the proceeds will support local youth/junior cyclists and triathletes through the Colorado Non-Profit, Club Cafe Velo.
There will be 3 Strava Segments with premium prizes for fastest times (top 3 men & top 3 women) posted during the GranFondo. You must be a paid participant in the event AND submit/upload your Strava file on the day of the event by 7pm to be eligible.
