Granfondo Colnago.......in San Diego, CA!









A granfondo is coming to southern California in the form of the Granfondo Colnago-San Diego. The event will take place on March 1st, beginning in the Little Italy section of San Diego. I've been informed by the organizer that Ernesto Colnago will be present at the event.


There will be two routes, 100 miles (160 km) Gran Fondo with 4,800+ feet of climbing and 45 miles (72 km) Medio Fondo with 1,250 feet of climbing. The event also includes a free custom jersey for all entrants, finish line lunch, “King of the Mountain” awards in all age groups, aid stations & mobile tech support and more according to the organizers.


Entry fees: $99 individual, $190 tandem
