2016 Sponsorship Opportunities at the Fifth Annual Giro di San Diego Gran Fondo

PDF download

Southern California meets Italy at the Giro di San Diego Gran Fondo, a celebration of cycling, food, and San Diego’s North Coast. Held in beautiful Solana Beach, CA, the two-day festival features five mass-start, timed cycling events for road and mountain bikers, A Bike & Fitness Expo, and the Super Tasty 5K walk.

Keeping with the tradition of Italian Gran Fondos, which are semi-competitive, long-distance rides attracting thousands of cyclists, the Giro di San Diego caters primarily to casual riders, though professional cyclists are invited as special guests.

Our event is known for having challenging and picturesque routes, outstanding ride support, delicious food on course, and post-ride pampering. We overlay the riding options with a street-fair style Expo and a 5K Taste of Solana Beach Restaurant Walk to offer something for everyone.

Sponsoring the Giro di San Diego Gran Fondo can benefit your business in numerous ways, including exposure to attendees, positive public relations, advertising, distribution of product or coupons, and increased social media exposure.
