SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – Zozi, the leading online discovery engine for incredible experiences announced today that Chris Lieto has partnered with zozi to offer exclusive expert-led adventures as a zozi Guru™. The zozi Guru platform launched in January to give customers access to expert experiences hosted by the world’s preeminent athletes and lifestyle icons. Chris is a three-time Ironman champ and considered one of the fastest cyclists in his sport.
Lieto’s first zozi Guru experience will be an intimate excursion cycling through wine country in beautiful Sonoma County, CA. Small groups of 15 people will learn the skills necessary to reach big performance gains before they head out on a 35-50 mile ride that will come with one-on-one instruction by Lieto to help attendees become faster, stronger, and more powerful cyclists. Experience will end with a post-ride break for a local, fresh meal of seasonal fare among new friends while dining al fresco at Barn Diva, a critically acclaimed restaurant and lounge in downtown Healdsburg. The experience will cost $395.
“The zozi Guru platform is making some of the world’s most fascinating athletes and personalities such as Chris, accessible to those who want to experience their passion and expertise first-hand,” said T.J.

“What will really make my zozi Guru experience special is the fact that I’ll be sharing my own personal perspective, stories and insights with guests throughout the entire day,” said Chris Lieto. “It will about getting to know each other and our love for the sport just as much as it will be about performance. I’m excited to build amazing experiences and memories with other people in such an authentic and powerful way.”
