About Colnago Gran Fondo Lobo
In 2016, Fondo Manila in Partnership with the Municipality of Lobo, Batangas dreamt up of a way to add value to the tourism activities of Lobo. The area boasts of one of the most eco-diverse marine systems, Verde Pass, the jewel of the Municipality. While its neighbors in Batangas such as Anilao and Pico de Loro have enjoyed mainstream tourism success, the municipality is innovating ways to attract visitors to the area. This gave birth to the idea of a mass-participation ride designed to tour the participants through the various features of the municipality.
For 2017, with the help of Colnago Manila, the team aims to elevate the advocacy by attracting a bigger participation and market to join the event. Cycling provides the intersection of the values of Fondo Manila, Colnago, and the Municipality of Lobo to create a one of a kind experience. The route features 4 major climbs, the halfway point being a turnover ceremony for the collected school supplies at the heritage site, Malabrigo Lighthouse overlooking Verde Pass.
Gran Fondo Lobo 2017 marks the culmination of the partnership between Fondo Manila and Colnago for 2017. The series of events marks a starting point in what proved to be a roller-coaster of a year for the two brands. The Fondo Manila team is honored to have been of service to one of the greatest names in cycling history.
