FIVE WEEKEND PREDICTIONS FOR 2019
Garden State Fondo is this Sunday. We know you'll be there. Here are a few of the best moments to look for this weekend.
Expect to see Tyler Pearce, aka Vegan Cyclist, riding around town with a vegetable burrito.
Ok, maybe Tyler won't be riding with a burrito at the Fondo, but he did ask us where he can find a good veggie burrito around Morristown, and we are pretty sure he'll be going to get it on his bike.
You are riding to benefit amazing causes. Expect them to show you their love and appreciation to what you are doing for them.
Your ride supports the development of a Seeing Eye puppy or dog. By riding the Gran Fondo you are going to help enhance the independence, dignity, and self-confidence of blind people.
In addition to The Seeing Eye, your pedal strokes will benefit 4 other amazing causes: New Jersey Bike & Walk Coalition, Homeless Solutions, Raritan Headwaters, and NICA.
Expect to see RAD RIDERS AT ALL LEVELS. The community has many faces, and so does our ride.
That's right. From some of the best racers in the northeast to complete beginners, the weekend is all about the love we all share for cycling, and our desire to challenge ourselves and grow our community.
2,500 people will be joining us at the start line this year. Each member of the community is there to enjoy the most fun they'll have on a bike in a single day.
Be friendly, be welcoming, be inclusive.
Everyone is going to rave about the food because it is going to be absolutely amazing.
It's not a true Garden State Fondo without the New Jersey hospitality and some of the best food in the nation. The rest stop treats are made by local chefs and pastry chefs in support of the community from locally sourced ingredients.
CHEESECAKES, AFFOGATOS, WOOD FIRE BRICK OVEN PIZZAS, CANOLIS, PIGNOLIS, CAKE POPS, ESPRESSOS - EVERY STOP IS A DESTINATION.
Earlier this year Garden State Fondo was awarded #1 Gran Fondo in the USA. It's important to us that you confirm your participation ASAP so we can:
Provide you with the best mass start cycling experience in the country.
Inspire others to ride bicycles by building a welcoming community.
Use the power of bikes to drive change and support our beneficiaries.
