Levi's GranFondo joins forces with Specialized Bicycles to help more people ride!
We're ecstatic to join forces with Specialized Bicycle Company through 2019 to build on our success as America's Premier Gran Fondo. Right out of the gate we are pleased to announce our Free U24 program. Beginning this year, anyone under the age of 24 gets to ride our event for FREE.
“There were barriers to cycling in my youth. This partnership with Specialized will help break down those barriers for others and bring full-circle the gift of freedom that comes from the bicycle.” ~Levi Leipheimer
In 2009 we created a ride to be the experience of a lifetime. Our commitment to sharing that with others is steadfast. Youth are crucially important to our purpose through King Ridge Foundation. In that light, we have supported at-risk youth, youth racing, bike parks for kids, and hosted dozens of NorCal High School League competitors at our ride for years.This year we decided to take it to the ultimate level and grant free admission to Levi's GranFondo to ANYONE under the age of 24.
How does it work?
There are no special gimmicks. Just register online and enter your birthdate. You will be required to show proof of age at rider check-in. Anyone under the age of 18 years old will require a parent or guardian to be present to sign our liability waiver. Anyone under the age of 15 requires a parent to ride with them as a chaperone.Forward this message to every young rider and parent you know. We want to share the GranFondo experience and give everyone the opportunity to ride with us. Together we can bring full-circle the gift of freedom that comes from the bicycle.
