FAQ'S

What is a Gran Fondo?

A Gran Fondo is a type of long-distance road cycling event of at least 120 kilometres (75 mi) long originating in Italy and roughly translates into English as "Big Ride".  The starts are done en masse, and the format allows for riders of every level to participate, much like a marathon, where most participants are competing against the clock instead of other participants.  Traditionally a large meal is served to the participants at the end of the event.
