Jenny Wiley Gran Fondo
August 31, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm$25
Jenny Wiley Gran Fondo cycling rally 2019- A Gran Fondo is a type of long-distance road cycling ride originating in Italy in 1970, and roughly translates into English as “Big Ride”. Italian Gran Fondos are officially defined and certified by the Italian Cycling Federation as a bicycle event at least 75 miles long. 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, and roads are shut down. Saturday August 31 choose 33, 70 or 100 miles! If you have never ridden a century this is your chance to enjoy a 100 mile bike ride fully supported, with great food and comradery! Friday night registration and pre ride 16.7 miles, Saturday start time 9 am, Sunday recovery ride, 30 miles. A great weekend of cycling, food and friendship!
