We will be receiving a portion of the proceeds from the event this year, and encourage you to invite your friends for this unique Central Coast cycling experience.

The ride offers three routes to accommodate a variety of riders:

  • GranFondo: over 100 miles on a challenging ride from SLO up the northern coast to Piedras Blancas and back
  • MedioFondo: about 50 miles along the same route as the GranFondo, but returns after reaching Cayucos
  • PiccoloFondo: a 25 mile loop through countryside that unfolds onto the Morro Bay estuary

Registration is now open, (registering after September 1st will not secure you a jersey until after the event).

Regardless of your ability level, a GranFondo is an unforgettable cycling experience. The Coalition will be parking bikes in the Mission after the ride and will receive a portion of the proceeds from the event! By riding you can support both ALPHA and the Coalition!

July 4th Bike Parade

Morro Bay’s July 4th celebration included the 2nd annual bike parade! We were glad to be a part of the parade, and park bikes at Tidelands Park at the end of the ride down the Embarcadero. Early estimates were around 500 participants in the parade, which went from the Rock to Tidelands, as a sea of red, white & blue on two wheels! See more photos on our flickr photostream here.
