Do You Have What it Takes to Tackle Southern California's Most Difficult Long Distance GranFondo?
The 105-mile “Gran Fondo” route is the only local event to feature a timed climb up the South Grade of Mount Palomar. Often compared to France’s Alpe d’Huez, Palomar is a fabled climb, summiting at 5,240’, which has been featured twice in the Tour of California bicycle race.
Lastly, over the entire weekend of the Giro di San Diego, a Bike and Fitness Expo with the ambience of a Southern California street fair is held in Solana Beach’s Fletcher Cove area, just steps from the Pacific Ocean.
The routes for this event will host many of the best rides in the north county as well as the most frequently traveled paths taken by the many professional athletes that ride in the area. These roads have likened the wheels of riders as Lance Armstrong, Chris Horner, Axel Merckx, Thurlow Rogers and many others. The long Gran Fondo will also boast the fiercest of all climbs in San Diego, the south grade of Mt Palomar. This climb was featured on the 2009 Tour of California and will be our official KOM/QOM for the Gran Fondo course riders.

"I always loved doing GranFondo's in Italy, many of them offered special incentive gifts to women to participate, as cycling is such a male dominated sport in Italia. I thought we could continue in that Granfondo Tradition with the Giro. There are so many strong women in Southern California and I want them all to feel welcomed and invited to this challenging event." - Carrie Panek - Director, GranFondo Cycling Tours
