FoCo Fondo is only a month away! Time to register!

With that, Bike Sports are excited to share their initial tech guide. Some details will be changing slightly and the routes are NOT final, but should give you a very good idea of what to expect for the weekend.

Things will kick off Saturday, July 23rd with a coffee and FoCo Fondo-themed donut meet-and-greet at FoCo DoCo at 8am until rolling over to the shakeout ride from New Belgium at 10am. Afterwards, pick up your packet starting at 12pm and until 8pm, sticking around for a New Belgium tour, and lunch at the brewery.

Sunday starts bright and early to get things you rolling before the heat. Be sure to check out any special notes for your route in the tech guide. Poudre Valley Fire will be present with a firetruck to cheer on the kids (and adults!) leaving on the 12- and 32-mile routes and the festival, which is open to the public, will open shortly after. Cactus Cat will be jamming live from 11-4pm with some breaks and we'll follow up with all our awards at 4:15pm. From there, join us at The Lyric for the Happily ENVE After Party in the evening.
