What Is The Challenge Fondo?

Love to ride? This event has built-in options no matter your comfort level! Bring your riding partners for a day of turning the crank and relax with a food and refreshments at the finish. Ride at your own pace, accomplish your own goals, while meeting up with friends who may be going longer or shorter. Enjoy a few laps together, rest, and regroup again on the course. The more laps you ride the better the award at the end.
