DAY ONE as captured by Brian Black Hodes

Led by members of the Serious Cycling Team and guest Pros, the Peloton rolled out for the 151km GRANFONDO with pro-level support by SRAM, ASSOS and Campagnolo. In true "epic" gran fondo fashion, athletes traversed all types of terrain from flat farmland and rolling coastline to an epic climb atop the Santa Monica Mountains.

The heart and soul of this cycling experience was captured by a master cycling photographer, Brian Black Hodes, of VeloImages. This is only scratches the surface of the day.  For more of Brian's amazing shots, please visit our Facebook photo album:

 

 


DAY TWO Post Ride! Awards Celebration and Brunch, hosted by Vintage Grocers, Malibu, and captured by Brian Black Hodes.

To complete the Malibu GRANFONDO experience on Day Two, athletes had the option of an Individual Time Trial or a group recovery ride along the Pacific Coast Highway. Post ride, athletes enjoyed Sunday Brunch and our Awards Ceremony, featuring this year's limited edition, hand made tile for all.

Individual Time Trial photos taken by Brian Black Hodes on Day Two can be viewed and purchased, with proceeds benefitting Challenged Athletes Foundation. 


DAY ONE as captured by Tammy Brimner

This year the Malibu GRANFONDO had not one, but TWO very talented photographers out on the course. 

Joining us all the way from Canada for our pre-event Ride! Camp, Tammy spent five days behind the lens capturing the all that is MGF: community, camaraderie, and breathtaking scenery. For more of Tammy's amazing images, please visit her website:
