The 2017 Malibu Gran Fondo, on March 4 and 5, is proud and honored to announce its partnership with The Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF). The Malibu Gran Fondo is committed to raising awareness and funds for CAF, creating a forum for advocacy, and furthering the mission of its presenting sponsor: “to grow the love of cycling.”
Presented by Serious Cycling, this world-class event, held in the beautiful and iconic city of Malibu, California, is an exclusive weekend designed to attract cyclists from around the world, showcasing the magnificent Southern California landscape and ideal early spring weather. In partnering with Assos, Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village, and Vintage Grocers, the Malibu Gran Fondo delivers a high-end experience that aligns with those who train regularly, enjoy participating in challenging events and demand something better than what is out there.
By supporting the Malibu Gran Fondo, participants ‘pedal with a purpose’ and contribute to furthering the programs and mission of The Challenged Athletes Foundation: “to provide opportunities and support to people with physical challenges, so they can pursue active lifestyles through physical fitness and competitive athletics. The Challenged Athletes Foundation believes that involvement in sports at any level increases self-esteem, encourages independence and enhances quality of life.”
Challenged Athletes Foundation vision is to be a recognized leader in a movement through which physically challenged athletes are accepted and respected at the same level as able-bodied athletes, to have a great and significant impact on each physically challenged athlete served, and to reach out to the physically challenged community by providing inspiration, awareness and mentoring.
The Malibu Gran Fondo will welcome members of the physically challenged community to the starting line: day one hosted by the Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village; day two hosted by Vintage Grocers Malibu. Offering pro-level on-course support, gourmet rest stops, catered receptions, concierge services, post ride massage, bike wash/valet, and forums for advocacy, Malibu Gran Fondo is the Complete Cycling Experience.
