Presenting Sponsor for the TuneUp Ride at the 2018 Bookwalter Binge Gran Fondo Announced
Brent Bookwalter and Symmetry Financial Group will host the TuneUp Ride on October 26, 2018
Asheville, NC – March 21, 2018 – Event Director announced Wednesday that Symmetry Financial Group will return as the Presenting Sponsor of the TuneUp Ride at the 2018 Bookwalter Binge Gran Fondo.
This is the second year that Symmetry Financial Group has served at the Presenting Sponsor of the TuneUp Ride. A unique experience for cyclists, the ride starts and finishes at the Symmetry Financial Group headquarters near Asheville, NC.
Founder & Partner, Casey Watkins, rides with the group of VIPs, pro cyclists, and Binge Founders Brent & Jamie Bookwalter. A meal following the ride is provided at Native Kitchen & Social Pub, hosted by Symmetry Financial Group.
“Of all the rides and races I've done, the Binge is one of my favorites,” says Casey Watkins. “To ride next to pro cyclists that you watch race on TV all over the world is a pretty cool thing! They are really fun to ride with -- and if you pay attention, it will make you a better rider. I look forward to this event every year and love that participation helps the community and supports such a great cause.”
“We love riding with Casey, and we really love dining with him and his family at Native Kitchen & Social Pub – a true asset of Swannanoa specifically and the Asheville area generally,” says Brent Bookwalter. “Friday's TuneUp ride and lunch is a perfect way to lead into the Binge Fondo the following day and one of my favorite parts of the weekend as the small group atmosphere and gourmet lunch provide a chance to closely and personally connect with Bingers. We can’t wait to ride again with the gang in the TuneUp.”
The Bookwalter Binge is a relaxed Gran Fondo ride, studded with racing on timed segments of tough climbs that provide an epic challenge to all. The Binge, which will be held on Saturday October 27, is preceded by the TuneUp Ride on Friday. The TuneUp is a chance to take short ride with many of the pro cyclists who participate in the Bookwalter Binge Gran Fondo the following day. Limited to 30 riders, the TuneUp Ride will sell out well in advance.
The Bookwalter Binge Gran Fondo offers three routes of varying length traverse some of the most beautiful roads in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Asheville, North Carolina: 7,000 ft of climbing in 87 miles, 5,800 ft in 72 miles, or 2,850 ft in 39 miles.
Both the Binge and the TuneUp rides provide unique opportunities to ride alongside female and male pro cyclists as they celebrate the end of their season racing all over the world and the country.
Registration for the Bookwalter Binge Gran Fondo & TuneUp Ride will open on April 25, 2018.
