Event Description

Gran Fondo New York

 

Gran Fondo New York brings Italian cycling culture to the world's greatest city

 

The second edition of Gran Fondo New York brings Italian cycling culture to the world's greatest city on May 20, 2012. Join thousands of cyclists on a challenging 100 mile Gran Fondo and 65 mile non competitive Medio Fondo from New York City to Bear Mountain and back in an experience fit for a pro and open to anyone who loves to ride.

The entry fee for the Gran and Medio Fondo remain the same: $195 and $165 respectively until October 31. Great news: we were able to waive the processing fee so the only additional cost is your credit card fee (3%). Hence, the actual entry fee is lower than 2011! Spots are limited. If you want to race, make sure you register asap.
