About the ride

well this day is about the ride but it is also about the experience of the noble sport of cycling first and foremost. The actual miles will be easy and the company even easier as we all meet at La Foccaceria restaurant for espresso, catch up with old friends, meet new ones and get the day started. The ride will be fully supported by Cynergy Cycles as we roll through Beverly Hills heading west to our destination Tra di Noi Restaurant of Malibu we go through Santa Monica to the PCH where we head north to Tra Di Noi with a few climbs thrown in to make sure we have an appetite upon finish.

Mr. Tarcisio Mosconi Managing Partner of Tra Di Noi and fellow cyclist will be our host in Malibu. Participants will enjoy a complementary sparkling wine toast from Malibu Family Wines, and the option of purchasing lunch. Tra Di Noi is it’s own experience of delightful service and the best black truffle pasta we have ever eaten…after lunch ride to your next destination or Cynergy will be happy to provide transport back (limited space – must reserve)

Cynergy Cycles will be arriving at La Foccaceria at 9AM providing mechanical support before and during the ride, offering demo bikes upon reservation, rider transport back to the city as reserved (limited reserve  by 6/23) This is all part of their new lifestyle offering CYNERGY-BLACK to be revealed later this summer. Power Bar will supply nutritional products.

Commonly asked questions

What is a Celebrita Gran Fondo? The Celebrita Gran Fondo is a ride for pleasure and is not affiliated with the Los Angeles Gran Fondo however it is the day before and done in spirit with the  LA Gran Fondo. The ride is a fun way to spend some time with friends the day before and it is a great opportunity for raising awareness of Franceso’s foundation the FRANCESCO QUINN LEGACY. The foundation is a charitable organization benefiting educational and cultural programs for kids otherwise stuck in the bureaucracy of the correctional system. They partner with such programs as IDEAL YOUTH and OPERATION STREET KIDS in helping to give these kids the tools to live an extraordinary life of arts, culture and infinite possibilities, exposing them to a world they would not otherwise get to know.

Francesco Quinn

Francesco has appeared in nearly 20 feature length films and 60 television series, is the Italian Ambassador of Cycling to the United States, his achievements in film and what he has given to the community of Los Angeles are impressive but who he really is to us at Cynergy is the guy that can climb Topanga Canyon in his big ring without being dropped by CYNEGRY-BLACK rider Roman Cantelearist a National Champion of his home country 4 times.

Who else will be on the ride? hopefully you plus many others that just love the noble sport cycling, expect to see a few well known riders plus a few notable names from the entertainment industry. This ride will be at a casual gentleman’s pace not a race a relaxed ride to prep your body for the next day. Bring non riding friends or family to join us before the ride for coffee before departure and see La Foccaceria Restaurant the newest dining experience in Beverly Hills.

What is CYNERGY-BLACK? CYNERGY-BLACK is a lifestyle as much as anything, some call it a club, others call it a team, at Cynergy we say it is “who we are”.

It will be a chance for us to show you special moments in life, an opportunity for you to live out your passion for cycling and the lifestyle that revolves around the sport we love.
