We look forward to hosting you at FestiVELO XVI and showing you a great experience and wonderful time. We will have three route distances each day: short (less than 30 miles), medium (about 60 miles) and long (100+/- miles). Most riders will arrive Wednesday, October 30, and ride Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. All rides start and end at the same place for the entire weekend; all breakfasts and dinners will be held at the same place. If you are signing up for the daily rides, register for the "Select A Day to Ride" event and choose the day you wish to ride. You can add additional days by completing that process again.
