BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - HbW and Hilltop Bicycles are sponsoring Cycletta Fondo, the first women's only fondo in New Jersey scheduled Aug. 17 in Berkeley Heights.  Women of all ages - from recreational to endurance cyclists - are invited to join HbW and participate in this inaugural women's event to encourage women in cycling, build camaraderie among women cyclists, and promote health and well-being. 

The Cycletta Fondo is a women’s cycling event series offering fully-supported, fun, and challenging rides, with timed hill climbs. The Hb Cycletta Fondo route options consist of a 170k Hb Fondo (3 timed hill climbs), a 100k Cycletta (1 timed hill climb) and a 50k Piccolo (1 timed hill climb). The combination of bike touring and timed climbs attracts a wide range of cyclists ranging from the casual weekend rider to the well-trained endurance athlete.

Full-on professional mechanical support will assist you along the way and fully-stocked rest areas will assure that you are properly fueled and hydrated for the miles ahead. Post-ride, enjoy a buffet lunch (included with registration) in a private air-conditioned banquet facility.

All participants will be eligible for raffle prizes, including the all carbon 2014 Focus Izalco Donna with Ultegra 11-speed. One lucky registrant will win this beautiful bike - a $2,500 value. All finishers will receive a Cycletta Fondo medal.  The top hill climber on each course will be awarded a cash purse and special prizes!
