Kepri Fondo Weekend


21 Oct 2017 to 22 Oct 2017

In conjunction with ANZA Cycling, Cycosports is organising a relaxing training camp on the island of Bintan for the weekend of the 21/22 October.

Taking the ferry from Tanah Merah on Saturday to Tanjung Pinang, this camp will see a fully supported ride around the southern end of Tanjung Pinang with options for 50, 100 and 150km. Cycosports has organised twin share accommodation at the best hotel in Bintan - CK Tanjung Pinang, which will provide lunch and breakfast the following day. A VIP dinner is planned for all who participate in the ride, followed by the option of a cultural evening. The return ferry will be early Sunday so that you are home for lunch.

Once in a while, Cycosports organises a fun weekend to say thank you to all its regular riders.  Together with ANZA Cycling, Cycosports has created a fun weekend for those who enjoy a gran fondo type of ride rather than a race.

On the 21/22 October Cycosports is organising a training weekend in Bintan. The idea is participants can choose 50, 100 or 150km rides. When you decide that's it for the day, you can head for the CK Tanjong Pinang Hotel and relax by the pool, or head down to the local markets and night bazaar. Included within the weekend are the ferry ticket, bike handling, twin share accommodation, lunch, a VIP dinner, cultural show and breakfast the next day. We will also have ride support so you don't have to worry about hydration or mechanicals.

As this is a joint ride, there are some slots put aside for ANZA. We have also allocated some slots for ladies there has been strong interest from the community to do more for women's cycling.

Note: The weekend is limited to total of 60 participants with twin share pricing starting at $99* (includes everything). Single occupancy is available at $179. There is also an option to come back on the last ferry on Saturday for those who would just like to do a day trip.
