The in-person event will begin at 8 a.m. Saturday, June 26 at Tutty’s Crossing Trailhead, 250 E. Stephenson Street in Freeport. Riders can choose from 30-mile, 50-mile, 75-mile, and a 50-mile gravel route, or simply enjoy a fun bike ride of any length dedicated to those who are battling or have battled cancer. Virtual participants are asked to complete their chosen routes between Saturday, June 19 and Saturday, June 26.

GPS maps and cue sheets are available for all of the routes on the event’s website, www.fhn.org/granfonda.

In lieu of a registration fee, participants and supporters are invited to donate to the Leonard C. Ferguson Cancer Center at FHN Memorial Hospital in Freeport.

Dave Fonda, the founder of and inspiration for this event, loved cycling and his community. He began this fundraiser in 2007, dedicated to parlaying his passion into a cause that could help those fighting cancer. Dave lost his own battle with cancer in 2018, and the event has been renamed in his honor.
