Sagan Fondo Thank You

Dear Sprinteurs:

Thank you for being a part of the first-ever Sagan Fondo: Gran Roadie-Oh! Peter sends his warm regards and wants you to know he will be back to make sprint next year in San Diego from November 6 through November 8, 2020. He says, “Please make a note of it.”

It was a wonderful day, made so by all the beautiful people who rode, supported, sponsored, documented or otherwise celebrated this first annual party. Peter told us it was the best Sagan Fondo to date, but we already have plans to make the 2nd edition even better with our friends at Team Sagan, Specialized, 100%, Sportful, Osmo, Fizik, Blast Radius Coffee, Monster Hydro, Quantum Energy Squares, Garda Bike Hotel, Floyd’s of Leadville, and Rouleur, all of which are wonderful sponsors.

We are very appreciative of all of you and your contributions to this Roadie-Oh, parade, gathering, fête, sprint-fest, and beer guzzling contest. We are proud of all the overall and age group winners of the Sprint Go Around sponsored by Seth Davidson Law, and all of you who enjoyed the fun of a unique course and the chance to ride with Peter and so many other notable cycling champions. The category winners are available to you at this link: https://roadieoh.com/blogs/results/2019-results-sfgr-san-diego

Special thanks to Laura and Mitchell Goldman of ‘nspire Happiness for being the presenting sponsor of the Friday Gala event where we raised over $100K for CAF and Outride. And of course, a huge thank you to Lori and Bill Walton for hosting the event at their house. What a fun night that was!

We’d also like to thank our hosts for the weekend: North City (www.northcity.com), the City of San Marcos (www.san-marcos.net) and Urge Common House (https://sm.urgegastropub.com/)!
