Campagnolo Gran Fondo New York announces a new level of unique experiences and added benefits for the May 17, 2015 edition of the race, called GFNY PLUS.
The new benefit package is a result of an ongoing effort to evolve the event based on participant feedback and demand. In a city known for its one-of-a-kind experiences, the GFNY PLUS package adds even more “amazing” to the event’s once-in-a-lifetime experiences like the closed-to-cars George Washington Bridge and the closed-to-cars Bear Mountain.
GFNY PLUS includes registration for Campagnolo Gran Fondo New York, access to the pre-race expo without waiting in line, invitation to the GFNY Welcome Dinner, pre-race ride with Olympic Silver Medalist Nelson Vails and access to the hospitality tent in the finish area with premium food and beverages, post-race massage, dedicated secure bike parking, bag check and portable toilets and a GFNY shower pack.
Participants who seek only an upgraded start position, without access to the hospitality tent and other added benefits, can still go to www.operationsmile.org/granfondo and fundraise the minimum amounts for the respective corrals: $1000 for 3rd corral, $1500 for 2nd corral and $2500 for first corral.
Registration for Campagnolo Gran Fondo New York 100 miles, GFNY Bear 50 miles and GFNY PLUS is open now at www.granfondony.eventbrite.com.
