NEW in 2013: All riders will do a "Victory" lap around the track at the Richmond Raceway Complex before crossing the finish line!
What is a Gran Fondo? “Gran Fondo” means “Big Ride” in Italian. Gran Fondos are long distance, mass-participation cycling events – not races – that are immensely popular in Italy. Participation is open to recreational and competitive amateur cyclists. All abilities are welcome! Some cyclists enter for the challenge and satisfaction of making it to the finish line; others want to push themselves and their friends!
Choose the full 102-mile Gran Fondo or the shorter 59-mile or 29-mile distances. All riders finish at Richmond Raceway Complex. Plan on joining us for the entire day because we'll celebrate your accomplishment with a big ol' feast at the raceway afterwards! It’s an experience fit for a pro and open to anyone who loves to ride.
