FoCo Fondofest

FoCo Fondofest

August 04 2018
Fort Collins, Colorado, USA

The FoCo Fondo is a daring gravel cycling adventure that starts and finishes at New Belgium Brewing in Fort Collins, Colorado. Choose family-friendly 12- or 25-mile routes and make those end-of-summer memories together. Or challenge yourself with the rolling 50-mile route or the ultimate Bite the Bullet 100-mile gravel fondo. Post-ride, enjoy the Fondofest festival full of food trucks, vendors, bike-demos, live music, and activities for the kids. A portion of profits go to support after-school and summer programs through Safe Routes to School, an FC Bikes program.

The FoCo Fondo was founded from a love of exploration and adventure. This love took us to the quiet rolling gravel hills of Northern Colorado. We hope to share this love of exploration and adventure with Fort Collins no matter the mileage. The goal of our ride and festival is to promote exploration to those same places on bikes. Whether it’s a child new to riding discovering something that sparks his passion or an experienced cyclist finding his lost love of the sport on the 100 mile route. We are here to support everyone in having a happy, healthy lifestyle.
