A NEW GRANFONDO GARNEAU NOW IN FLORIDA!

Building off the tremendous success of the Granfondo Garneau-Cascades presented by Quebecor (a 110 km from Trois-Rivières to Québec, Canada), Louis Garneau is excited to announce the Granfondo Garneau Florida presented by Delray Beach Twilight. 

The Granfondo Garneau Florida is comprised of two routes, 37 miles and 62 miles, in Delray Beach, Florida to be held on March 23, 2013. Riders will travel the Florida State Road A1A along the Atlantic Ocean in support of sea turtle protection programs through Gumbo Limbo Nature Center.  Interested participants can register online for the event at: http://delraybeachtwilight.com/granfondo-ride.php

"We have received such tremendous support for the Garneau Granfondo and are gearing up for an exciting action-filled event for athletes of different levels, ages and disciplines...all to support a great cause in our community," says Chelsea Midlarsky, event organizer.  

The event will precede the 2nd Annual Delray Beach Twilight Festival. Participants will receive a Custom Louis Garneau Granfondo Jersey, Event Medal, and Certificate. In addition, the course will offer fully stocked rest stops, SAG support, and a catered lunch. The event will incorporate bib timing so each participant can record how long it takes them to complete the course. For the more competitive participants, Category Winner Jerseys will be awarded. 

"The Granfondo Garneau will be the second Granfondo presented by Garneau in the last eight months. Having a true competitive spirit, Granfondos represent an opportunity for me to share this love of racing at the mass-participation level and to challenge riders of all abilities. Yet, while I have a strong passion for racing, charitable work is also very important for me. The Granfondo Garneau Flrorida will raise money for the sea turtle protection programs of the Gumbo Limbo Nature Center as Florida boasts some of the most important nesting beaches for sea turtles in the world." remarks President and Founder, Louis Garneau. 

The Granfondo Garneau-Cascades in Quebec, Canada will be held for the second year on August 11, 2013. Stay tuned for further details.
