Gerês Granfondo

June 17 2017
Vila do Gerês, Nr Porto, Portugal
 

In 2014 we will take down borders! Following the huge success of its first edition, we decided to innovate Gerês Granfondo Cycling Road 2014 edition, which will be held on June 15. All the unique features of this race were mantained, both in respect to the course as well as the natural beauty that is offered by the Gerês, but we took a step forward, making an incursion to the neighbour region of Galicia, in the municipality of Lobios.

Vila do Gerês, in the very heart of the National Park of Peneda-Gerês is once again the starting and finishing point of the race, which will take all participants through some of the most beautiful roads in Minho region, in northern Portugal. The course crosses five municipalities - Terras de Bouro, Amares, Vila Verde, Ponte da Barca, Arcos de Valdevez – and some of the most symbolic and breathtaking places of this area.

Gerês Granfondo Cycling Road is not all about tourism, without a doubt one of its steppingstones as it is the challenge of personal superation. There are two distances: 160 km in the Granfondo and 100 km in the Mediofondo, both of them having the unique qualities of this event.

A final word to say Rui Costa, cycling's road world champion, is the godfather of this event. 

More details on the courses coming soon.
