Bill Bone Burger Gran Fondo

April 18 2021
Boca Raton, Florida
 
Let's be clear about the intent of the Bill Bone Burger Fondo.  Our goal is to deliver the safest ride experience,  the pleasure of riding on A1A with your friends and enjoying the best BURGERS around.  To make sure we accomplish those goals we have engaged the 'A-Team' of promoters, sponsors and an executive chef.
 
THE FONDO CHEF
Chef Patti has been written up in Bon Appetite as Executive Chef and partner at Sweet Sop Restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale. He has been featured on Diners, Drive Ins & Dives. M.E.A.T. Eatery And Taproom’s most prestigious recognitions was being named the #5 Burger restaurant in the US by Trip Advisor in 2014, Best Burger in Florida by Thrillist 2015, Best Burger in Florida by Chowhound 2016/2017 and Top 101 Burgers in America by the Daily Meal 2015-2019. His restaurants have over 40 awards in Florida.
 
90K Gran Fondo
7:00am - 55 mile ride, but 90K sounds way cooler.  This ride is not the typical Start to Finish format, rather it uses two, 15-mile timed section to produce results (see below).  This style of Fondo allows the group to come back together and enjoy the aid stations and comfort of the group. This ride uses a high speed chip timing placed on the fork of your bike. You can use your own chip if you own one, or you can pick up the morning of the event or the day prior at packet pickup. You must leave your drivers license or credit card as collateral as these chips are $100 each. You must attach the high speed timing chip to your front fork of your bike. The ride will be led by police escorts.
 
There are two (2) timed sections of the ride. The ride will have a 6-mile neutral start roll out from CONTE'S BIKE SHOP. The action begins at Spanish River Blvd. Police will make every attempt to control the lights for each timed section, but there are no guarantees. Please use a typical road bike for this ride as e-bikes, tandem bikes, triathlon bikes (or bars) are not permitted on this ride. Please do the 60K ride instead. CLICK HERE FOR COURSE ROUTE
 
Timed Section 1 (From Spanish River Blvd to 1/4 before Lake Ave - 15 miles). Look for the orange waving flags and finish line. After this section riders will be escorted to the next neutral stop located at the law office of title sponsor Bill Bone. The ride will stop and riders will enjoy drinks and food (Mile 30), then head back South.
 
Timed Section 2 (From Lake Ave to Spanish River Blvd - top off rise - 15 miles). Look for orange waving flags and the finish line. After crossing, make a right turn and head to CONTE'S BIKE SHOP off Federal Highway for some good grub.
 
Timed Section Scoring - Each rider will be scored upon their placement in their category by time for each section. The two sections will be added up to provide a final overall time. Examples: Rider Johnny Wheels (Time Section 1: 21:23 Time Section 2: 22:33 = Total Time 43.66). Each category is ranked by total time.
 
80k Social Ride
50 miles ride, but 80K sounds cooler and farther,  100% social ride led by police escort. You may use any bike you wish on this ride, but we ask that if you are using triathlon bars, you say off the bars of a rider is in front of you in the pace line. Speeds are less than 19 mph. 200 Max riders. Riders will stop at office of Bill Bone, local top cycling attorney, West Palm Beach  (Mile 25) for a nutrition break of goodies and then head back to CONTE'S BIKE SHOP. Riders are required to wear BIB numbers. This ride is not chipped timed. CLICK HERE FOR ROUTE
