We apologize for the confusion and potential inconvenience this date change may cause. Our original date change – to July 27th, 2014 – was partially based on Axel Merckx’s availability. As you may know, Axel is heavily involved in professional cycling (as a team director, ambassador, and former rider) and the professional race calendar is ever changing. Ultimately, the original date did not align well.
Fortunately, we can now revert back to the 2nd weekend of July (as was the case with our inaugural Granfondo). This new event date (July 13th, 2014) enables us to provide a better event. While the date change was largely a logistical issue, we did receive input from riders, partners, and volunteers suggesting that the July 13th, 2014 date is preferable – and we thank you for your feedback.
If you have any questions whatsoever, please e-mail us at: email@example.com. We will respond to your e-mail in 24 hours.
