What is a FONDO?  

Fondo is an Italian term, which very loosely translates to “Big Ride”!  Riders, ranging from professional to recreational cyclists, are encouraged to participate in these type events for general camaraderie amongst biking enthusiasts.  Fondo are usually "longer" and are known for having scenic views, and the chance to meet other like minded individuals.
