First Round of LRGF FAQ Posted...thanks for your questions

These can be found on the FAQ page of the website...

What is a Gran Fondo?

  • In Italian, it means “a big ride”

  • Not a race, but a mass start, premium, road cycling event for enthusiasts and racers alike

  • A bit more adventurous and spirited than your normal T shirt ride and with much higher level amenities

  • Wear your best kit, ride your best equipment.  It's going to be a big day.

  • A Gran Fondo finishes with a great meal and celebration with your fellow cyclists

  • While some riders will race, many will just take it all penalties either way.

How long is the ride?

  • 60-70 miles

Is the route set and will it be shared prior to the ride?

  • We are making the final tweaks now.  Our goal is to create a highly unique course on less traveled roads south of Little Rock.  Initial course details will be released by April 1st. And a detailed course preview will be released by May 1st.
