Sunday 24th March 2019
For 2019 the City of Armadale Grand Fondo returns with its EIGHTH year and once again the original and first Grand Fondo here in Western Australia.
This event has grown from strength to strength with many cyclists making it one of their ride targets for the year with the 2019 edition being the first quarter target!
For 2019 we return to do the THREE preferred distances now regarded as challenging and iconic:
Piccolo Fondo – 50 km – Our community ride through the plains of Armadale.
Medio Fondo – 90 km – As the name implies our Middle Distance ride which will have undulations and hill challenges.
Gran Fondo – 120 km – Our signature event which made the name Heritage Drive synonymous with Hill Climbing for cyclists. There is also a Sprint and KOM / QOM section combined in this distance located somewhere in the Wungong region.
Date: Sunday 24th March 2019
Start / Finish location: Dome Kelmscott – 2810 Albany Highway, Kelmscott
6am - 6.10 am Gran Fondo 120km
6.15am - 6.25 am Medio Fondo 90km
6.30am-6.40 am Piccolo Fondo 50km
Blue Army members / Perth Cycling Group social members are advised to apply during the Early Bird period for our signature event. We have capped the fees to be the same as 2019 as we believe that cycling events such as this can remain below the $100 threshold!
