Life Time Fitness To Host Inaugural Gran Fondo Cycling Series Event
Unique Ride to Incorporate “Races within a Ride”

(BUSINESS WIRE)--Life Time Fitness, Inc. (NYSE:LTM):



Life Time Fitness members and general public are invited to participate in the inaugural Life Time Gran Fondocycling event. Open to recreational and competitive cyclists alike, Gran Fondo (or “Big Ride”) events have become increasingly popular in Europe and beyond for their long-distance, mass-participation ride - versus race - format.

          The unique, 100k (62.1 mile) Life Time Fitness ride will cover a beautiful, yet challenging course on the country roads through Mound, Orono, Watertown and Delano. It features three 'Races within a Ride' at designated points on the course in which age group winners will be crowned in the three categories: King and Queen of the Mountain, Time Trial and Sprints.
          Additionally, the event will offer two refueling stations along the route and a festive, post-event BBQ at the finish area for all participants.
