Description - 31/62 mile riders

The 31-mile Tour route has been carefully planned by 2000 US Olympian, former Pro Tour Cyclist and Long Beach Bike Ambassador, Tony Cruz. Starting in Downtown Long Beach at Marina Green Park 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. There is an option to tour twice and ride 62 miles for a Metric Century Ride. Riders will finish along Shoreline Drive and be directed to the Bike Festival where finisher's medals, food, refreshments, and live entertainment are available. Rated "Best Tour" by Active.com users.

Description - 100 mile riders

The 100+ mile Cruz Gran Fondo brings Italian cycling culture to Southern California. The course will take cyclists along the Tour route then down PCH through Huntington Beach and Newport Beach before returning. Professional Cyclist Tony Cruz will be leading the ride along with members of Long Beach's Cruz Cycling team. Riders will finish along Shoreline Drive where finisher's medals, food and refreshments are available. Participants receive a goody bag, water bottle, Gran Fondo Jersey (mailed if registering after February 28), finisher's medal and entry into the Bike Festival.
