The annual cycling event in San Antonio, FL will be held March 23-24, 2019.

Happy Hour, Hosted by Flint Creek Outfitters

A great cycling event is more than a bike ride, and Gran Fondo Florida features a Saturday evening Happy Hour hosted by Flint Creek Outfitters in Dade City, FL. Cyclists can meet new and old friends over drinks and appetizers at Flint Creek Outfitters from 6:30-7:30 PM on Saturday, March 23.

Finish Line Party, Hosted by VO2 Max Cycles

There’s nothing like a hot meal and cold beer after a great day on the bike. Hosted by VO2 Max Cycles, the Finish Line Party at Gran Fondo Florida will feature food from Boss Ross BBQ and live music by Rough Idle. Riders are encouraged to stick around for a chance to win valuable raffle prizes from GFNS sponsors.

Lodging Offer from Hampton Inn Dade City

Cyclists traveling to Gran Fondo Florida can take advantage of special event room rates at the Hampton Inn Dade City - Zephyrhills. In addition to a $129 discounted room rate, the Hampton Inn will be serving breakfast starting at 5:30 AM to accommodate cyclists getting ready for Gran Fondo Florida.

Updated Team Competition with 15-Second Time Bonus Per Team Member

The Gran Fondo National Series encourages clubs and teams to ride, compete, and have fun together. The 2019 update to the Team Competition ensures that everyone on a team plays a role in the final outcome by rewarding a time bonus for each team member. The winning team at each GFNS event will receive four complimentary entries to any GFNS event within the following 11 months.

Rules for the new Team Competition:

  A team’s time for the competition is equal to the sum of a team’s fastest four finishers’ times in the overall standings of the Gran Route.
  A time bonus equal to 15 seconds-per-team-member shall be subtracted from each team's result. Example: A 4-person team gets a 60-second bonus. An 8-member team gets a 120-second bonus.
  Teams must have four (4) or more riders to qualify.
  Team category is only for the Gran Route distance (~100 miles).
  All team members must be registered under the same team name prior to the start of the event.
  Team riders are still eligible for individual awards.
  No Team Cars are allowed to follow the route.

Entry Fees Increase March 4!

Registration prices for all three routes will increase by $20-$25 on March 4, 2019. Cyclists are urged to register early to take advantage of lower registration prices.

The current fees are:

  Gran Route (100 miles): $120
