Philanthropic cyclists to cruise through Claremont
Cyclists participating in RCS Sport’s Grand Fondo Giro d’Italia, a fundraising bike ride to benefit the Susan G. Komen foundation, will be come through Claremont this Sunday, June 2.
The section through Claremont is part of a 94-mile route starting and ending in Pasadena. It’s estimated 200 cyclists will come through Claremont between 8:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. as part of the ride. Staff anticipates the ride will have little impact to residents. No streets will be closed and the riders will be in relatively small groups once they reach Claremont, officials say. The event organizer is paying for additional Claremont police officers to ensure the race does not impact the safety of motorists and cyclists, according to City Manager Tony Ramos.
