VERMONT GRAN FONDO – JUNE 29th, 2019 – BRISTOL, VT.
About 500 rapid cyclists participated in this iconic cycling event which includes riding the 4 mountain gaps which span the green mountains, a distance of 109 miles. An option exists to do just two of the gaps. Team Flyin was represented by Peter Hawks and Brian Salatino (a board member).

The Flyin Ryan Foundation is a Summit sponsor and principal beneficiary of this event. Our friends at Vermont Tent provided generous support for tent and table costs. Our friends at Long Trail made it possible for Flyin Ryan IPA to be available and for a portion of the proceeds to flow to the foundation. The weather was perfect; Flyin Ryan swag presented to podium recipients in the beer tent proved to be the popular favorite. We are grateful to Todd Warnoch, race director, for orchestrating this event and providing us with a fundraising privilege.
