Celebrate your completion of the 2016 The Alpine Loop Gran Fondo with a personalized Loopie print – a beautiful and lasting reminder of a great day on the bike; and now you have the option to take advantage of a special offer from The Frame Factory & Gallery to have your Loopie professionally custom-framed.

The owner of The Frame Factory & Gallery, Dana Harshbarger, has curated a selection of framing materials that complement the design of the personalized Loopie prints.

When you order your Loopie, you have the option to select ship directly to the Frame Factory. After your Loopie is ordered, simply call or e-mail The Frame Factory to begin the process of selecting your custom-framing package.

The Frame Factory & Gallery will donate 5% of the cost of each framing package to the charitable mission of the Alpine Loop Gran Fondo.
