The goal of the Oakland Gran Fondo is to inject health and wellness into the community with an incredible bike event for all ages and to raise funds for Bike East Bay. The beautiful backdrop of Jack London Square is the perfect setting for this fall event to keep the bike community motivated to stay fit and healthy throughout the year. “It’s so exciting to see a major biking event kick off in Oakland,” says Renee Rivera, Executive Director of Bike East Bay. “We’re looking forward to an event that brings people of all riding levels out to enjoy the beauty of the East Bay.”

The Oakland Gran Fondo has been designed with 3 enjoyable East Bay routes that will cater to 3 different types of cyclists and allow for everyone including families to join in this community event that is benefiting Bike East Bay.

The expo will consist of what makes Oakland and Jack London Square special, from the waterfront views, food & beverage, art, diversity, and our great charities.  The expo will be open to the public and will be a 2-day festival of what makes cycling special in the bay area. Join us for a great expo, a great ride, and our community of bike enthusiasts and family.
