SLO GranFondo

October 28 - October 29 2017
Avila Beach, California, USA

The 4th SLO GranFondo presented by VisitAvilaBeach.com offers participants a Classic Italian Cycling Festival with three timed rides through the beautiful California Central Coast. Enjoy scenic coastal and wine country vistas, in 70 degree fall weather over rolling miles of clean open road.

The event weekend kicks off with a Saturday Pro Panel Reception in Avila Beach with host Bob Roll, which is your chance to mix it up with the Pros in an intimate setting.

On Sunday, the rides will take cyclists through the heart of SLO Town, up the pristine coastline and over epic eye candy climbs.

Our post-ride Festivale Italiano offers five star Northern Italian cuisine from Buona Tavola, award winning local wines, craft beers and live music.

Traditional Giro PINK jerseys go to all top M/F riders and the classic polka dot KOM jersey goes to the King & Queen of the timed Old Creek Road climb on the Fondo route.

The fourth event edition again benefits The Alpha Foundation and The Hearst Cancer Resource Center at French Hospital.
