Posted by Editoress on 07/11/12
Corsa Cycles is hosting the PrimaFondo, a warm up event for September's RBC GranFondo Whistler, on Saturday, July 28th at 11:00 am.
Riders of all abilities are invited to participate in this free day of road riding, whether they are registered in the RBC GranFondo Whistler or not.
“This is our third year hosting this event,” said Corsa Cycles' Dave Heisler, “and it's a great, low-key way to prepare for the RBC GranFondo Whistler or to be introduced to road riding in a group.” The Primafondo starts promptly at 11:00am when riders will depart from Corsa Cycles in Squamish Station Mall in groups led by experienced Corsa Team riders. Participants will enjoy a scenic ride through Squamish and Paradise Valley before returning to Corsa Cycles in time for a catered BBQ lunch and social at around 1pm.
Heisler asks that drivers watch out for packs of cyclists along the route between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm on July 28.
“Drivers and riders in this valley are generally really respectful of each other, so we just want to ask drivers to pay special attention during that day,” Heisler said.
Cervelo Canada will be on hand with a limited number of demo road bikes for participants to try. If you are interested, please contact the shop by Friday, July 27th to reserve a bike.
The PrimaFondo is sponsored by Corsa Cycles, Cervelo Canada and RBC Granfondo Whistler.
All the fun and food is free to participants, but you must RSVP online here to reserve your place in the pack and at the lunch table. Please drop by the shop or contact them by phone/email for more information.
