4th Edition of FoCo Fondofest expands Routes and Cycling Festival 

Foco Fondo, a cycling event company, announces the return of gravel ride and festival FoCo Fondofest on August 3rd, 2019, continuing FoCo Fondofest’s Legendary Gravel Event Experience

Fort Collins, CO:  This fourth year event returns with four route options: 12-, 25-, 50-, and the Bite the Bullet 107-mile challenge. The route finishes with a cycling festival, the Fondofest, at iconic New Belgium Brewing, complete with live music, an announcer, vendors, demos, Strider kid’s course, catered lunch, and, of course, New Belgium beer. Registration is now open. Although the ride is not a race, there are Strava segments for cash and riders who finish under a prestigious time limit on the Bite the Bullet challenge win a FoCo Fondo bolo tie.

4th Edition of FoCo Fondofest expands Routes and Cycling Festival

The FoCo Fondofest fills the space between sanctioned races and supported group rides, scratching the competitive itch for some, but first and foremost, giving riders the experience of a lifetime. Riders will pass through remote old-time western towns, grasslands, parks and open spaces before making their way back to New Belgium Brewing for a festival celebrating cycling.

This year’s benefitting partner is again Safe Routes to School, a Fort Collins program with the objective of getting more kids on bikes for transportation and exploration. A portion of profits will go to fund after-school and summer programs, available to kids of economic statuses. “Fort Collins and Larimer county have amazing roads, rarely traveled by cars,” says co-founder Zack Allison. “The dirt roads take you to a number of open spaces with beautiful views of the mountain range, that you don’t get from town. We want to bring this event to people of all ages and abilities and benefit one of the organizations that gets kids on bikes with Safe Routes to School.”  In addition, many event partners are donating directly to Safe Routes to School.

About Foco Fondo

FoCo Fondo was founded from a love of exploration and adventure in 2016. This love took the event to the quiet rolling gravel hills of Northern Colorado. The FoCo Fondo seeks to share this love of exploration and adventure with Fort Collins no matter the mileage.
