Welcome to the City of Armadale Grand Fondo
Sunday, 15th May 2016
In its 5th year – CAGF is now regarded as one of the most iconic cycling events here in Western Australia.
Cycle within the City of Armadale through new routes never done before in a cycling event with challenges to suit the discerning rider.
Grand Fondo 40km – for the developing cyclist wishing to be challenged in their first hill climb event.
Grand Fondo 80km – for the established cyclist wanting to do very technical hills climbs in excess of 2000m over a distance of 80km.
Grand Fondo 110 km – now regarded as the MOST technical hill climbing cycling event in Perth!
Nestled in the foothills of Perth – the City of Armadale is a hidden jewel with some of the most iconic hills rides within easy reach of the Perth population. Many iconic cycling events foray into the region but never has a Grand Fondo been held within the City limits that will take you from the plains to the hills and once again to the plains of Armadale.
The City of Armadale Grand Fondo has been designed with the traditional Italian style Grand Fondo in mind where cyclists and the community mingle together to savour and experience all about road touring cycling as well as the sights and sounds of the local region. There will be three distances to choose from for the Grand Fondo aspect of the event: 40km, 80km and 110 km, all achievable with the appropriate amount of time and training which the Perth Integrated Health Cycling Group can provide.
Imagine a cycling touring event where your local bike shops are part of the event, including that of social groups and corporate companies. This together with local cycling related charities and bike related retailer will ensure that the Tent City within the City of Armadale city centre will be a resounding success. In short everything to do with cycling will be in one place at the City of Armadale Grand Fondo.
Some of the many highlights of this event include:
- Catering for all level of cyclists from recreational to racing and cycling touring
- Individual and Team entries welcome
- Iconic 40km, 80km and 110km distances for the Grand Fondo
- Flexible starting and ending times
