Gran Fondo Ellensburg

June 16 2019
Ellensburg, Washington, USA

The Gran Fondo is a celebrated tradition in Italian cycling culture. A Gran Fondo is a long distance cycling event, that while – not a race – is timed to provide some recognition to the top finishers.

The Gran Fondo Ellensburg will take you to the edge and back. And dish out nearly 10,000′ of climbing!

You will receive a super cool limited Gran Fondo Ephrata t-shirt, a police escort through town, a well thought out, and well marked course to ride, a well stocked aid station to refuel at mid ride, and a hot meal to refuel post ride. We will also post the times of all finishers for bragging rights.

Gears/Bike: With so many variable course conditions it is hard to say what’s right or wrong. Road, cross, or mtb, any one will work, but all will have a disadvantage at some point. Personally I would use a cx bike with some beefy road tires. There will be lots of climbing so plan accordingly. There will be a few sag wagons and an aid station, but it’s a good idea to be somewhat self sufficient. Weather is always something to consider this time of year. I would love to say it’s going to be sunny and 55 degrees, but it could just as easily rain or snow. Bring on the adventure baby!
