Dear Cyclists,

Welcome to the fourth year of MCA’s signature event, “Ride for the Arts”. We think you’ll be excited with the changes, including new and improved routes, added prizes for age groups for both the Gran Fondo and the Medio rides and an expanded fun Piccolo ride. The Vendor Village is growing and we’ll have even more amazing door prizes.

This is our fourth year for the Ride for the Arts, and our second year offering a Gran Fondo. We are dedicated to produce a first-class event that will continue to grow and attract cyclists nationwide. Thank you to my committee, who have worked tirelessly since the week after the last event. Thank you to our sponsors, vendors, volunteers, and you, the cyclists for supporting cycling and promoting the arts in our community.

We are dedicated to making this THE BEST GRAN FONDO in the US! Thank you again for helping to make this happen. Enjoy the ride, good luck and above all, be safe!


Mary Verrandeaux
