"I thoroughly enjoyed the Rollfast Gran Fondo, well worth the 5 hour drive from Cleveland. The course was fast, scenic, well organized and the route marked professionally."

Walter Scott, Cleveland, Ohio

"It's really awesome to have the Carmel Police as part of this event as well as the Harley's to assist with blocking incoming traffic at intersections so we can keep on rolling as much as we can."

John Skjeveland, Carmel, Indiana

"I loved the route, the amenities, the atmosphere, the city, everything about it. The staggared start made it easy to fall in with cyclists of the same ability so that was much appreciated. I've got 9/18/16 saved on my calendar and am looking forward to participating again!"

Dave Creighton, Carol Stream, Illinois
