Oregon Gran Fondo

Oregon Gran Fondo

July 25 2020
Cottage Grove, Oregon, USA

Gran Fondo is Italian and translates approximately to “Big Ride.” Gran Fondo rides have their origin in Italy and France, where the general public was invited to ride a single stage of one of the professional grand tours, the Tour de France, and the Giro D'Italia after the pro race went through. Everyone, of any age and ability, was invited to participate. Ex-professionals and elite racers lined up side by side with 80-year-old farmers toting baguettes in the baskets of their 1920’s era commuter bikes. Family members lined the route and handed out food and water bottles. While some choose to ride fast and test their endurance, by definition, a Gran Fondo is not a race, but rather a mass start event designed to draw the community together and give everyone a chance to enjoy the fun of riding a bike on the same course as the pros.

It is truly a ride for everyone that is up for the challenge from 40 miles to 137!

With your support for every 50 riders entered we will give away 5 entries to under 24 year olds and women to bring more riders into this great sport. 

New for 2019 reserve a room at the Village Green Resort and get locked in at the 70.00 early entry fee for the Oregon Gran Fondo!
