Gran Fondo is Italian and translates approximately to “Big Ride.” Gran Fondo rides have their origin in Italy and France, where the general public was invited to ride a single stage of one of the professional grand tours, the Tour de France, and the Giro D'Italia after the pro race went through. Everyone, of any age and ability, was invited to participate. Ex-professionals and elite racers lined up side by side with 80-year-old farmers toting baguettes in the baskets of their 1920’s era commuter bikes. Family members lined the route and handed out food and water bottles. While some choose to ride fast and test their endurance, by definition, a Gran Fondo is not a race, but rather a mass start event designed to draw the community together and give everyone a chance to enjoy the fun of riding a bike on the same course as the pros.

It is truly a ride for everyone that is up for the challenge!

Please note the 42 Mile Picollo and 137 Mile Sherman will not be a mass start.

This Past Year we are pleased to have Levi Leipheimer to the Oregon Gran Fondo in Support of the King Ridge Foundation and HOSEA YOUTH SERVICES of Lane County. 

Levi was on a comeback from a horrible injury and it was great to have his support for a great day on the Bike. Levi's Gran Fondo happens each fall and I hope to see you in Santa Rosa on the line for one of 11 routes. This year in 2018 we are stoked to have finally added a shorter Picollo route and while at 40 miles and 2000 ft of climbing. This route is more friendly than the longer routes that do take a bit more fitness. Link to Levi's Gran Fondo
