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:
