Track and Trail is organising a riding event titled ‘Gran Fondo Kochi’, on December 17, 2017 at 5:30 am. The ride is a quarterly event organised to bring in the culture of cycling among riders and also a chance to meet all the cycling enthusiasts in the city and discuss more on cycling.
The event will also include a breakfast , Track and Trail Gran Fondo limited edition T-shirt, refreshments at one pit stop enroute and medals for all winners and participants in the event.
“The main aim of organising cycling event is to promote healthy living. People don't really find time to exercise and so cycling can serve as a healthy alternative,” says Rajith Rathiyappan, who runs Track and Trail.
There will be around 150 riders participating in the event and this is our 7th edition, he added.
