WHAT IS GRANFONDO?
Gran Fondo or Granfondo is an Italian term which commonly translates as “Big Ride”.
Granfondo is mass participation cycling events that have enjoyed incredible popularity in Europe for decades and have become popular worldwide.

Think of a Granfondo as a combination of a group ride, race, and tour, all in one. Mechanical, medical support, and during ride and post ride food and refreshments are available for all participants. Think of the ride as a big rolling party! Moreover, Granfondo events include: challenging routes, electronic timing, fantastic giveaways, a consumer expo, well-stocked aid stations, mobile tech support and a fun post-race party.
