Ride Information

About The Vino Fondo- Big Shark Bicycle Company and Sugar Creek Winery are bringing the European cycling tradition of the Gran Fondo cycling experience to Missouri's hilliest wine country. A traditional pairing of challenging riding and a tour of some of Missouri's best vineyards. Experience the same roads and towns visited by the internationally acclaimed Tour of Missouri Professional Cycling Race.

The Vino Fondo is a fully supported, timed ride. Although not a race, all participants will receive two measures of their achievement: overall ride time AND their climbing time over the penultimate beast, the Schluersburg. There are three distance options, each tuned to maximize scenery and include as many of the regions challenging "topographic features" as we can find. We're crafty like that.

About Gran Fondo's- Also called Cyclosportif rides, Gran Fondo's are challenging rides that combine the best elements of epic recreational rides, some of the characteristics of a race and the visual experiences of the touring cyclist. The Gran Fondo experience is a true melting pot for cyclists of all abilities- with one goal, the satisfaction of achievement.

Prevent Injury & Ride Your Best

One of the biggest training mistakes cyclists make is leaving recovery to chance.

Cycling demands a lot from our bodies, if we’re not keeping up with maintenance, then it will eventually break down.

The best way to prevent injury while riding is with targeted mobility and strength work.

Our friends at Dynamic Cyclist have created easy to follow routines, 15 - 20 minutes in length, that will keep you riding pain free all season long.
