Hi Everyone,

I would like to announce the inaugural Costa Rica LOOK TRANS BIKE, the first gran fondo in Costa Rica, May 1-2, 2010. Starting at the beautiful seaside town of Samara you will enjoy a beautiful coastal view before heading up in the mountains, finally reaching Arenal. We have three distances: for those up to the challenge we have the 205 km gran fondo, or the 125 km medio fondo, or for those just starting out in cycling the 80 km mini fondo. Whichever route you choose you will be sure to find an adventure of a lifetime.

Please feel free to contact me here on the forum or directly through the website.

Where is the best fly in for this event? Is it possible to do just the event and not the 3 or 8 day training? What is the cost of just the Grand Fondo. Looks great.
