Trailnet is partnering with Big Shark and the Lupus Foundation to present the MO Gran Fondo, three phenomenal rides that stretch from May to October. The fun begins with Big Shark’s Vino Fondo on May 13. On August 5, ride in support of the Lupus Foundation at the Wolf Ride in Eureka. The series wraps up with Trailnet’s Appleknocker Gran Fondo on Sunday, October 15.
The Appleknocker will take you to rural Calhoun County, IL, nestled between the Mississippi and Illinois rivers. This challenging, timed ride offers three routes: 120 mile Gala, 60 mile Red Delicious, or the 30 mile Granny Smith.
Appleknocker registration includes an exclusive t-shirt, fully stocked rest stops each with its own theme, printed and digital maps, expert SAG support, and a post-ride party featuring a hearty meal, all the craft beer you can legally consume, and some rockin’ music. Prizes will be awarded to each finisher and category winners will receive special awards.
During the Appleknocker, Big Shark will be holding the second of their Bubba Series Cyclocross Races. Cyclocross is a great spectator sport, run on a short course with obstacles that require great bike handling skills.
REGISTER HERE FOR THE APPLEKNOCKER – register by March 31 for the low price of $60 (members) – $65 (nonmembers).
By completing all three Fondos you will receive an exclusive t-shirt, a victory party after the Appleknocker, discounted entry on next year’s MO Gran Fondo and recognition on our websites and social media. Are you up for the challenge? Set a new personal record by completing the MO Gran Fondo!
