About This Activity
Over $138,000 (net) was raised in 2015 to support pediatric cancer programs at the Jonathan Jaques Children’s Cancer Center (JJCCC) at Miller Children's & Women's Hospital Long Beach. 3,500 riders are expected in 2016 and sponsorship funds will again support pediatric cancer programs at JJCCC. Riders can participate in the 5-mile Family Fun Ride, 30-mile Tour, 62-mile Metric Century or the 100+ mile Cruz Gran Fondo. All rides have been carefully planned by 2000 US Olympian, former Pro Cyclist and Long Beach Bike Ambassador, Tony Cruz.
FREE! Family Fun Ride – 5 Miles
The Family Fun Ride is a perfect morning ride for kids and families and youth groups of all ages. Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and other organized groups can use the ride to complete requirements for cycling badges too! This ride is free and participants will receive a finisher's medal and entrance into the Finish Line Festival but not an event goodie bag or t-shirt.
Tour of Long Beach – 30 Miles
Starting in Downtown Long Beach at the Long Beach Arena, riders will experience all that Long Beach has to offer: Pacific Ocean views, inland bays and waterways, a bustling downtown waterfront, visitor attractions, scenic parks, plus dozens of eclectic neighborhoods, each with its own style and spirit. The route has three SAG stations with medical staff, JAX Bicycle Shop professionals along with food and water. Riders will finish at the Marina Green Park where finisher's medals, food and refreshments are available. Participants receive a goodie bag, event t-shirt, finisher's medal and entry into the Finish Line Festival.
Metric Century Ride – 62 Miles
Metric Century riders will first follow the Tour route through Long Beach, then the Metric route will take riders south through Seal Beach to Newport Beach and back. Riders will get a taste of what the Cruz Gran Fondo is all about riding along the beach on a beautiful sunny May day. The route has five SAG stations with medical staff, JAX Bicycle Shop professionals along with food and water. Riders will finish at the Marina Green Park where finisher's medals, food and refreshments are available. Participants receive a goodie bag, event t-shirt, finisher's medal and entry into the Finish Line Festival.
Cruz Gran Fondo – 100+ Miles
The 100+ mile Cruz Gran Fondo brings Italian cycling culture to Southern California. The course will take cyclists along the Tour route then down Pacific Coast Highway through Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, Irvine, and Laguna Beach before returning. Professional Cyclist Tony Cruz will be leading the ride along with members of Long Beach's Lightening Velo Cycling Team. Riders will finish at the Marina Green Park where finisher's medals, food and refreshments are available. Participants receive a goodie bag, event t-shirt, finisher's medal and entry into the Finish Line Festival.
All abilities are welcome. Some cyclists enter for the challenge and satisfaction of making it to the finish line and others want to push themselves and their friends. Regardless, every Gran Fondo event is an unforgettable cycling experience!
This is a charity ride - though fundraising is not mandatory, we do encourage you help us raise awareness and support for children and families fighting this life-threatening disease at the Jonathan Jaques Children's Cancer Center at Miller Children's & Women's Hospital Long Beach.
When you raise a minimum of $400 through your fundraising page that was automatically created when you registered, you can earn a “Champions Club” jersey. Show everyone that you are helping in the fight against pediatric cancer!
NEW THIS YEAR! The top 50 fundraisers and one guest will be invited to the VIP tent at the Finish Line Festival. This VIP tent will have food and drinks along with a relaxing place to rest after the ride.
Jonathan Jaques Children’s Cancer Center
