The SLO GranFondo presented by VisitAvilaBeach.com on Saturday, October 28 offers participants three timed rides (100 Mile, 61 Mile & 25 Mile) through the beautiful California Central Coast. Enjoy scenic coastal and wine country vistas, in 70 degree fall weather over rolling miles of clean open road.
The event weekend kicks off with the rides on Saturday. You will begin in Avila Beach, go through the heart of downtown SLO and the pristine coastline with epic eye candy climbs. Our post-ride festival offers the best of Central Coast cuisine with delicious BBQ, award winning craft beers, local wines and live music. New this year will be the popular Pro Panel reception hosted right at the festival for everyone to participate in.
On Sunday, a limited amount of tickets are available for a new VIP Ride and Wine with Bob Roll and 2017 Pros at Sinor-Lavallee winery. Tickets include the recovery ride beginning at 9:30am, Q&A session at Sinor-Lavallee, Wine, Food and an autographed bottle of wine + event collectible poster.
