Red Rocks Gran Fondo Makes Seasonal Debut On August 13 Throughout Scenic Front Range
Formerly known Red Rocks Century Changes Name For Community Involvement
Denver, CO — March 8, 2016 —Red Rocks Gran Fondo, Colorado’s most scenic Front Range cycling event, is kicking off the new year by announcing some big changes to the formerly known Red Rocks Century Ride. This year’s ride, taking place on August 13th through beautiful Red Rocks Park in Morrison, CO will no longer be a century ride. Instead, the ride will be deemed a “Gran Fondo,” recognized by cyclists as a “big ride” that packs “big fun.”
The changes come in hopes of bringing more energy to the ride with a large post-ride celebration for all riders and local community members to join. Riveron Consulting will be the title sponsor for this year’s ride which hopes to attract a booming 500 riders. “The Riveron team is extremely excited to support the Red Rocks Gran Fondo as title sponsor for the second year in a row,” commented Steve Hills, Riveron Consulting Director. Changing the ride to a Gran Fondo will enable teams and riders to finish together, allowing the community to come together for a big celebration. The Red Rocks Gran Fondo will also offer the popular Metric route where competitive cyclists can surge up inclines for timed segments, creating a competitive component for cycling enthusiasts.
“We couldn’t be more excited to launch a brand new ride through the beautiful front rage with such an energetic community,” commented Brad Benson, Board Member and Co-Founder of the Red Rocks Gran Fondo. “By shifting our focus to one really great route and a bigger and better after-party, we’re hoping to make the post-ride celebration more exciting and more fun, and to send you on your way, full and happy!”
While the name and overall ride logistics have changed from previous years, there are several characteristics of the ride that cycling fanatics can still expect in this year’s ride. Like previous years, the ride will be charity based and will take place in the heart of one of Colorado’s most iconic venues, Red Rocks Park, where the scenery and majestic mountains will be the cyclist’s backdrop. The ride will also offer the same great expo location at the T.E.V. Edelweiss Club nestled within the town of Morrison, CO where riders will once again find a dedicated staff of volunteers putting on this ride.
“We are also excited to welcome the Tennyson Center for Children as the new beneficiary of the best cycling event on the Front Range,” adds Hills of Riveron Consulting. The main mission of the ride is to put on a great event that gives back. 100% of the proceeds for this year’s ride will go to the Tennyson Center for Children. “We are honored to be selected as the nonprofit of choice for this year’s Red Rocks Gran Fondo,” said Rod Witte, CEO of Tennyson Center for Children. “We appreciate this partnership and the community support. Thank you for helping kids who need it most!”
Early bird registration is officially open to riders interested in filling their schedules early. The ride is also offering a special “Early Bird Discount Rate” that riders won’t want to miss. Using the code “EB50” at checkout will allow riders to register and receive a free Red Rocks Grand Fondo 2016 jersey for just $70. The early bird registration rate will be available until March 31st.
