Gran Fondo 100 Mile Bike Rides

We could use anyone willing to help out, especially for June 24. This year we have Two Events that are tied together by a common “Gran Fondo 100 Mile Bike Ride”. The 100 mile course is in addition to the 4 other bike courses previously run. The 100 Miler is part of a Lifestyles Century Series and is run on two consecutive weekends.
