Community Main Street, the Iowa Bike Coalition and the Cedar Falls Tourism & Visitors Bureau are bringing a new event to the Cedar Valley on August 22nd, 2015. The Gran Fondo Cedar Valley is the Cedar Valley's first and only gran fondo cycling event! Riders will have the option to bike a 100 mile, 60 mile, or 30 mile course, which provides an opportunity for riders of any skill level to participate. Routes will begin and end in downtown Cedar Falls and include great stops in area communities along the way. Every 100-mile and 60-mile participant receives a jersey, swag bag, race entry and food at the post ride party. Finishers of the 100-mile ride will also receive a commemorative gold medal. Ride registration is currently open at www.granfondocedarvalley.com.
In conjunction with the bike ride, Community Main Street will also be hosting a full-scale street festival called FondoFest from 4pm-9pm following the ride. The festival will take place on Main Street in downtown Cedar Falls and will feature live music from Checker and the Bluetones, a craft beer tent featuring Iowa craft beer, and a special FUNdo Kid’s Area with a Strider Bike obstacle course, inflatables and more!
