Taken from the Italian version of Gran Fondo: El Grupo’s Fall Fondo is a fundraising ride with planned routes around the beautiful west and northwest sides of Tucson. Whether you choose the Long, Short, or Fun option, this Fall Fondo is designed to be a non-competitive, enjoyable ride that you do at your own pace.

Sag stop volunteers will serve up satisfying eats and drinks.  Be sure to save room for more, though, as there will be a full-fledged festa [italian for party] underway back at the Clubhouse  with food, beer, and other refreshments.  Stay for the fun, live music, and raffle prizes!

Worried that you’ll be less than Festa-fresh after your ride?  Pack a change of clothes and drop them off with our bag-check staff inside the Clubhouse.  We’ll stash your clothes so you can do a quick change in the Clubhouse changing rooms.

Family and friends are welcome at the Festa.  Additional food and drink/beer tickets will be available online and on-site.

Gear and Clothing drive:  Been meaning to donate a bicycle, parts, cycling gear, or clothing to El Grupo? Bring your donations to the Fondo and a friendly volunteer will write up a gift receipt for you.  Anything we cannot directly use we sell at local bike swap meets.  See our Wish List

Let us know if you have questions or would like to volunteer for the event
