The Top End Gran Fondo is the perfect excuse for a holiday to the Top End!
The Top End Gran Fondo is the big dance on the NT road cycling calendar and is the perfect opportunity to enjoy this beautiful part of Australia.
There are 4 distances which will accommodate all endurance levels of any rider: the 150km Gran Fondo, the 75km Half Fondo, the 25km Fun Fondo and the 3km Mini Fondo for the kids.
Participation is the key with those who are under 18 receiving a discount on the entry price. This cycling event is fully supported by the whole biking community, from the Darwin Cycling Club through to the local bike shops rallying to support the event.
This event starts along the Darwin waterfront, before heading out of town past Palmerston and out along the Stuart Highway through to the hight point near Livingston. Then traversing through Darwin River before a quick loop through the Territory Wildlife Park. Then heading home along the Channel Island Road and looping back into town.
The Top End Gran Fondo is held during the dry season, which means you can also escape the winter cold.
This is a true bucket list event. Even if it is to surprise your riding group as to why you didn’t do the local group ride. Especially after you upload the Top End Gran Fondo onto Strava (or your prefered app).
