Save The Date for the 2nd Giro Della Costa CentraleFriday, January 16, 2015
Hi Friends! We wanted to make sure we got to you early to Save the Date of Sunday, November 15, 2015, for the 2nd Giro Della Costa Centrale. We’ll be moving to a new location and will have 4 new routes. It’s going to be fantastico! We sold out last year at 600 riders and we expect to grow.
We had a great Professional line-up last year – Peter Stetina, Christian Vande Velde, Ina Yoko-Teutenberg and Patty Peoples. For 2015, we’re happy to have Bob “Bobke” Roll coming and you know it’s sure to be a good time! Look for other Pro announcements leading up to the race.
Plan ahead, you can REGISTER NOW! You’ll enjoy the beautiful California Central Coast, our Tuscan-like scenery, a great hot Italian lunch, wine and music. Keep checking our website or join our conversation on FACEBOOK.
The new Giro Della Costa Centrale is here!! Building upon the history and success of the SLO GranFondo, the Giro Della Costa Centrale (Tour of the Central Coast) has all new routes, beautiful Central Coast scenery, challenging climbs, a new classic bike rally and everything Italian from food, music and wine at the Festivale Italiano at the 5-Star Trilogy Resort at Monarch Dunes.The rides benefit Hearst Cancer Resource Center at French Hospital Medical Center and Alpha.
The rides celebrate cycling at its best. The new SLO GranFondo (100 miles) traces many of the roads used on the Amgen Tour of California Stage 5, traveling through San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties, into the Santa Ynez Valley and back to the Nipomo Mesa. This ride sees 4000 feet of climbing, great vistas and a challenge to all.
The MedioFondo (61 miles) provides a great challenge without the “suffer fest.” It’s a great ride for both men and women who like great scenery, a great workout and, frankly just love being in the saddle.
The FemmeFondo (50 miles) is a women-only ride, a first for this event. We’ll have professionals riding all out, along with participants thrilling chick fest fashion – these women will kick it! Bella!
The PiccoloFondo (25 miles) is a substantial ride, great for beginners to intermediate riders. A pleasant route for a Sunday ride with plenty of time to enjoy Festivale Italiano and, maybe, even a trip to the Trilogy Resort Spa.
LA DOLCE VITA! This phrase epitomizes the Central Coast of California! Our Festivale Italiano at Trilogy Resort at Monarch Dunes will show off the best of this area and its Italian heritage. We’ll have local Italian food, Italian wine, local craft beers, Italian music and a whole lot more!
