Gran Fondos have become very popular in Australia, with more of them being held each year.
So what is a Gran Fondo? Simply, it is an Italian word for a great ride!
They are usually a mass-participation cycling event where you’ll usually ride over 100 km that day. The emphasis is on camaraderie, spectacular scenery and personal achievement. There’s also the chance to win some prizes!
Electronic timing, ride jerseys, medical and mechanical support, feed zones and road blocks or escort vehicles are common.
Gran Fondos are designed to cater for riders of all abilities and experience, with shorter options often available.
You’ll find over 50 Gran Fondos from around Australia in this ever-growing list of cycling events. Good luck with making a decision!
