Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the 2020 Goldfields Cyclassic & Community Fondo has been postponed until 2021. 

Community Fondo

So, what's a Fondo anyway?  "Fondo" is an Italian word for "ride" and this year as part of the Cyclassic we would like to encourage everyone to participate in Day One - Menzies to Kalgoorlie.  

We are very pleased to be partnering with Triple M 981 Goldfields in 2020 and will be donating $5 from every Community Fondo Entry to the charity "Give Me 5 for Kids". (That's all people entered so $20 per team).  All funds raised stay in the Goldfields region.  Thanks Triple M 981 Goldfields for your support in promoting the Community Fondo. 

Do you have three like-minded colleagues?

If so, why not join together with your work-mates, gym buddies or your friends and participate in the Community Fondo?
The 132 km is broken up into four approximately equal sections. The first rider completes the section out of Kalgoorlie to Paddington, hands over to their team-mate who then pedals off to Davyhurst. Here number 3 team member is waiting. Number 3 pedals onwards to Comet Vale where the final team member will then cross the finishing line in Menzies or all team members can cross the line together.

Each team will need a vehicle and support person to carry all riders and equipment. Each team is responsible for placing its own rider at each handover point.

Can’t find three other people? No problem – teams can be up to four members so teams of two and three are also encouraged to participate. For those riders who just want to finish the event and not be part of the handicapped race, you can also ride the Community Fondo as an individual. More details in the attached Community Fondo information sheet.  

Cycling Australia require that you hold a license for insurance purposes.  As this is a Cycling Australia sanctioned event we are bound by their policies and procedures.  You can purchase a day licence when completing Registration and costs $12 per person. This cost is additional to the entry fee.   

NOTE: No headphones or go pro's are allowed during the ride.
