“The ride honors Ed Lund, a long time cyclist in the (Fresno) area and someone who lived life to the fullest,” said Levi Leipheimer in a recent social media video. “It will be an incredible day. I’ve ridden this route before and I’m really looking forward to doing it again.”

THE HAMMER ROAD RALLY is the brainchild of Lisa Lund-Brown and honors her late brother Edward O. Lund. In 2015, Edward tragically lost his life in a cycling accident while participating in a Levi’s GranFondo in (Santa Rosa, CA). “Eddy was an incredible human being who enjoyed life to the point of tears. His biggest passions were cycling and art, so it seemed natural to bring the two together with a road race that funded scholarships for young people applying to Fresno State’s art program."

THE HAMMER ROAD RALLY is a chance to celebrate Ed’s love for the bike, and to share that with the community that he cared so much about,” said Carlos Perez, event director and Founder of Bike Monkey of Santa Rosa.
