November 26 to December 5, 2016 - Gran Fondo Pre Tour

SATURDAY AFTERNOON

Airport pick up and drop to your accommodations. For those on our meal plan, prior to your arrival we will get your grocery list together and have your breakfast goodies waiting for you in your villa. This way, you can eat breakfast at your convenience prior to our daily rides. We will assist with bike set up if required. If time permits we will go on a short introductory ride


SATURDAY EVENING

We will start our first evening with dinner at Chin-Gon which is an amazing local restaurant that specializes in Asian Flavours. We chose Chin-Gon for the first night because some guests are arriving late and not everyone is always together on the first night. It is a perfect choice for a casual meal and and the same time we can get some delicious take out for you to enjoy at your villa if you are on a late flight!


SUNDAY (EASY)

Our first ride will depart at 8:00 AM SHARP and we will head out on the cobble streets to the highway which will take us to Valle de Banderas, San Juan de Abajo and then to our final destination El Colomo. This is a fairly easy ride with every little traffic and flat lands. The total distance is just over 50 KM. CLICK FOR MAP  

Dinner will be at 7:00 PM and location is TBD.


MONDAY (EASY - MODERATE)

Today we will ride the 2015 Gran Fondo course. It is a similar to the Sunday ride. We will push a little further through some small Mexican towns until we reach Fortuna de Vallejo. We will stop for a quick water, snack and/or beer before we head back to Bucerias. This is a really cool ride. The total distance is around 80KM. 

NO GROUP DINNER


TUESDAY (MODERATE - CHALLENGING)
