Gran Fondo is an Italian term, that loosely translated means “big ride”. Gran Fondos are mass participation cycling events that have enjoyed popularity all around the world and include courses for all levels of riding. In 2022 we bring you 3 distances to ensure that wherever you are at in your cycling journey we have a ‘big ride’ for you.
All 3 rides take in the beautiful Waikato landscape with some good gradients to keep it interesting! Give yourself a challenge, a goal to train for with friends, and enjoy the sense of achievement that comes with participating in a Gran Fondo. We look forward to welcoming you to.
