This update is all about the bicycle- so if that’s not one of your interests it’s okay to stop reading now. Many have looked forward to the King Ridge Gran Fondo and it’s finally here this weekend. The Final Draft of The Bike & Pedestrian Master plan is available for your review. It’s an important document that will guide development for years to come. Check it out.

October 9th, Saturday – The 2010 Levi Leipheimer King Ridge GranFondo offers three routes of varying distance and challenge, but all are, unfortunately, sold out. The 103 mile Gran route sold out in 3 weeks; the 65 mile Medio route sold out by mid-March! This even raises money for some excellent local beneficiaries such as Forget Me Not Farm, a haven for children and animals to bond and break the cycle of abuse.

The FondoSonoma Festival is at Finley Park starting at 10 a.m. Food, Beer, Wine, Kid’s activities, music and a bike expo. For complete info & details  Click Here!
