Somehow an otherwise ordinary beer release announcement seems like a well-deserved break from the less-than-inspiring news feeds as of late. With some warmer, sunnier days (hopefully ahead for all us!) we're just happy knowing that we can help offer a little relief 12 ounces at a time. Keep an eye out for 12packs arriving in stores this week across the metro and slowly beyond. Oh, and unlike last year's seasonal release we're happy to report Grapefruit Lonely Blonde is here to stay (year round!)
We are postponing the 2020 Fulton Gran Fondo until later this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It stings just a little more to add to the growing list of fun stripped out of our lives, but it's the right decision for the safety of each rider and our community. We're targeting late Summer/early Fall as a time period that hopefully ensures we'll be able to deliver the full-scale event we're so used to hosting and that you are used to attending. We're working diligently to hone-in a particular day for the event that will work for our partners, vendors, cyclocross team, and staff among many others (and including you!).
In the mean time, and on a more enjoyable note- we're looking into creating a virtual component to be held on Saturday, 5/2. Also, we want to ensure everyone who's registered for any of the 3 routes that your registration info and payment is secure and will carry-over 100% to the new date. We will be leaving our registration open between now and our new date announcement. Our pricing tier was previously scheduled to increase on 4/1, but we'll be holding out on that increase until the new date is announced (added bonus). Also related- for those who've ordered (or were planning to) their limited edition 2020 Fulton Gran Fondo jersey we want you to know that production is still going as planned. However, pickup won't be available till the new event date.
These times might be weird, but at least we have each other (and beer). Be safe. Be smart. Be considerate. Be well.
