Host City of Three-Time World Champion Peter Sagan’s Road Gran Fondo Announced

Bike Monkey announces Northern California town as host location for mass-participation cycling event in November 2018

(Windsor, CA, 10 July 2018) - Bike Monkey, in partnership with Grand Tour stage winner and three-time World Champion Peter Sagan announced Windsor, California as the host city for the upcoming Sagan Road Fondo.

On Saturday, November 3rd, riders from all over the world will converge on Windsor, taking advantage of its place in the heart of the Northern California wine country.
Located just one hour north of the Golden Gate Bridge, Windsor offers convenience to the Bay Area, abundant dining and lodging options, and proximity to great off-the-bike activities in the surrounding wine regions and open spaces.

“California is like a second home to me, so I love coming here and experiencing these roads with everyone else while raising money for a good cause. Our off-road Fondo at Lake Tahoe was a huge success and I know we’ll blow people away with what we have planned with our friends in Windsor,” said Peter Sagan.

In addition to the ride itself, there will be a variety of other events centered around the Windsor Town Green, from a Dia de Los Muertos celebration to a fundraising gala.

“Windsor ia a vibrant town with excellent proximity to a host of outdoor experiences,” said Bruce Okrepkie, Windsor’s Mayor. “This is a perfect opportunity to show thousands of cyclists what we’ve known all along.”

“When it comes to exploring our region’s vast eastern mountains, there’s no better launching pad than Windsor,” added Carlos Perez, Bike Monkey’s founder. “The community here is incredibly hospitable, bike-friendly, and ready to roll out the welcome mat for our Fondo riders.”

Event routes will pass through celebrated wine appellations like Dry Creek, Alexander, and Russian River Valleys as well as into the rugged back road terrain of the coastal mountain ranges. The most strenuous routes will traverse 80 miles and climb nearly 6,000 vertical feet.

“I’ve lived and trained in Sonoma County for more than 20 years,” noted former pro cyclist and three-time Amgen Tour of California winner Levi Leipheimer. “I’ve worked with Peter on these routes and know that Sagan Fondo riders are going to love going through some of our toughest and wildest mountain roads, armed with local knowledge.”

Registration for the Sagan Road Fondo is now open and all proceeds benefit the King Ridge Foundation. To sign up, and for more details, see saganfondo.com.
