TOUR OF JARRAHDALE – MEDIO & PICCOLO FONDO
Featuring the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation
Our extensive experience in Road racing and touring events in Italy has brought to Perth the terms Piccolo and Medio to signify our short and middle distance rides for the upcoming Tour of Jarrahdale.
With the Piccolo distanced at 40 km and the Medio at 80 km – this is a Ride event that would help you wash off the excess of Christmas and New Year as well as ensure that those of you with the continued focus will stay fit and ready for the whole summer season of cycling ahead.
The Tour of Jarrahdale is also our developmental ride event towards our signature event – the City of Armadale Grand Fondo and in 2015 – and makes for an excellent progression for May 2015.
Tour of Jarrahdale 2015 is also a very special event as we are using this event to raise awareness and funds for the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation or CLCRF as they are called. They are a special organisation that lends a direct hand to children in need and we want you to ride with the kids of CLCRF in mind and in spirit. Please donate generously to this fund knowing that your effort on the bike as well as your wallet is translated to a good cause.

New to CAGF 2015 – three Grand Fondo routes:
- Piccolo Fondo – 40 km
- Medio Fondo – 80 km
- Gran Fondo – 120 km
The Piccolo will be designed with the focus on the Armadale plains and the vistas that it allows. Specifically for developing riders wishing to do a Grand Fondo in Perth.
The Medio is yet another development ride for those who did CAGF 2013 and 2014 and wanting that extra challenge and kick. Defined in 2015 with a KOM / QOM segment as well as a Tarmac Sprint section.
The Gran as its name implies will be our 2015 signature route with epic and scenic climbs in excess of 2200 metres. Yet another development from CAGF 100 with the change of 2 KOM / QOM segments and possible 2 Tarmac Sprint sections. Something for the hill climbers and the flat landers for 2015!
