You all came out, rode hard, and made the 2013 The Oregon Gran Fondo amazing! More than 350 cyclists rode in the 2nd annual event, and the reviews have been great!
” The roads were so well marked, the fuel stops were just the perfect distance from one another, mechanic support was at a perfect spot, the microchip was brilliant, the introduction before the race was excellent, the police escort was amazing, the cheer-leading squad was fun, and not to mention the post race gathering, food, and party. Amazing, amazing, amazing!!! THANK YOU!”
