A Road Bike 4 U Grand Fondo 10/4/2014

A Road Bike 4 U is supporting the OC Grand Fondo.  We would like to spread the word to our members
The ride was started in 2010 by the St. John Neumann Church in Irvine.  After three consecutive years, it took a hiatus in 2013.  We were brought in to help improve the ride as we re-establish some lost momentum.  We have high hopes to make it a nationally-renowned Gran Fondo in the years to come (along the lines of Levi’s Fondo).  This year the route is improved and is a bit more challenging.  No more Santa Ana River trail.  There is also a neat Strava Challenge with award jerseys given out at the end.

You can also offer your members the following:  If you come into A Road Bike 4U and make any purchase, they can request a promotion code to get 15% off the entry fee!

PLEASE READ THIS IMPORTANT MESSAGE!

The IRWD Community Room, where the OCW General Meetings are held is located in the building in the BACK of the parking area.  If the doors are locked DO NOT KNOCK on the glass doors.  It means you are looking at the wrong building! 

 

The glass doors of the Community Room allow you to see people inside, and Miguel and Paul are usually there at 6 PM setting up the room. 

 

We will lose the use of the room if we bother IRWD employees banging on locked doors. Please be patient and wait or walk to the building in the rear of the parking lot.
