The brand new PrestoFondo at RBC GranFondo Silicon Valley
Exciting news is coming out of California, where the brand new PrestoFondo has just been announced for RBC GranFondo Silicon Valley
Offering a 62 mile option compared to the GranFondo’s 75 miles, riders will experience both a neutralized pace car rollout through downtown Silicon Valley and also complete intersection priority thanks to California Highway Patrol and local law enforcement – something very few events are able to offer.
It has to be said that this is the latest in a series of increasingly impressive additions to the weekend festival, and other event producers are sure to be taking notice.
The great thing we like about the PrestoFondo is that it’s accessible to anyone. Following the same beautiful course as the GranFondo until La Honda, PrestoFondo riders then swing a right and bypass straight to the gorgeous beaches of San Gregorio, cutting out 1,400 ft of leg-sapping climbs and replacing them with incredible views instead.
From here, you’ll rejoin the GranFondo field and tackle Tunitas Creek as a team before flowing downhill all the way home to a cold beer ready and waiting. You won’t need to be an aspiring pro-tour rider to enjoy this one, just a love of the outdoors and a sense of adventure.
Fully supported: Velofix and nuun at RBC GranFondo Silicon Valley

velofix have come onboard as the official event bike mechanic. As a mobile bike shop founded with a passion for cycling and with impressively knowledgeable and efficient staff, they will provide powerful pre, post, and SAG support during the event.
