What is a Gran Fondo?
The term "Fondo" usually encompasses a mass start endurance races, with riders taking the challenge on as a personal battle against their own limitations, and ultimately that of the clock. While riders do still ride in packs, these are formed along the way and not divided by license category. These events are designed to provide both competitive and experiential elements for both professional and recreational cyclists and so they're usually in stunning locations with great routes. Participation numbers can range from several hundred to several thousand riders!
