Order Your Jersey Post-Ride


If you waited to complete one of the challenging courses of the 2017 Alpine Loop Gran Fondo before ordering your 2017 event jersey, you’re not alone!

In response to this growing trend, we’ve created a simple way for you to order a 2017 jersey following your completion of the Alpine Loop Gran Fondo.

Jersey orders will be accepted online until Friday, October 13 at midnight.

The 2017 Alpine Loop Gran Fondo jersey is the stunning result of a collaboration between Giant Step Design and Cutaway Clothing. The bold colors and vintage look evoke nostalgia for classic adventures and celebrate the simple thrill of bicycling.

Jersey front and back feature the custom design inspired by the Shenandoah Valley and Allegheny Mountains featured in the Alpine Loop Gran Fondo. Jerseys features three elastic rear pockets, mesh side panels, full zip. Club Cut. See sizing guide prior to purchase.

Bib #s Assignments – Sign-In Tips

Number Sign

2017 Alpine Loop Gran Fondo Onsite Sign-In and Packet Pick Up will take place:

Saturday, September 30, 2-6 p.m.
Brothers Craft Brewing Brewery and Taproom
800 N Main Street,
Harrisonburg, Virginia






Sunday, October, 6-7:30 a.m.

Turner Pavilion / Start & Finish Line Festival Location
228 S Liberty Street, Harrisonburg, Virginia

For those able to, please make every effort to sign in on Saturday. Event-day sign-in is for those unable to arrive on Saturday. Do not wait!

At Sign-In you will to do two things before approaching the Registration Tables:

  • Sign a USA Cycling Waiver and Release
  • Lookup your bib # on lists provided, and write it on the upper corner of your Waiver.

YOU DO NOT NEED A USA CYCLING LICENSE – ANNUAL OR ONE-DAY – TO PARTICIPATE. (However, USAC license holders may be eligible for supplemental medical insurance coverage.)

To make the sign-in process simpler for yourself, you can do either or both prior to arriving:

Riders can collect someone else’s number and packet IF: they bring the absent rider’s signed waiver and release with them. Please do not “do your friend a favor” and collect his/her number and packet without asking them first – this leads to confusion.

After you complete the Sign-In process, riders who purchased additional merchandise, jerseys and meal tickets will receive those items at the Merchandise section of the registration area.

Please remember, event t-shirts were guaranteed onsite to participants who registered by September 22. Remainders will be available while supplies last. Event t-shirts will not be mailed to riders who do not attend the event.

Any unclaimed jerseys purchased will be mailed following the event, shipping charges may apply if you are in an extremely far-flung location.
