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 in...no penalties either way.
How long is the ride?
- 60-70 miles
Is the route set and will it be shared prior to the ride?
