GRAN FONDO!!

Posted: July 30, 2010 in Uncategorized

Just signed up to take part in the Gran Fondo USA!! I’ll be biking 63miles in Philly on August 8th!

What’s a Gran Fondo? I had no idea earlier until today. From the website, America’s First Gran Fondo:

“Gran Fondo” means “Big Ride” in Italian

Gran Fondos are long distance, mass-participation cycling events – not races – that have become immensely popular in Italy.  In France they’re known as “cyclosportives”.  Participation is open to recreational and competitive amateur cyclists, and tens of thousands of riders of all abilities participate.

Gran Fondos are often named after famous cyclists of the past, or after companies with a long heritage in cycling.  Some of the most famous Gran Fondos include the Prosecco Cycling Classic, the Nove Colli and the Felice Gimondi.

America’s First Gran Fondo Series
Now this exciting cycling tradition has come to the USA!
Gran Fondo Colnago – held in multiple cities – is America’s first Gran Fondo series.
