Gran Fondo Hundo Presented by Higher Gear

July 23 2017
Wilmette, Illinois, USA

In its fourth year, Higher Gear’s Gran Fondo Hundo is a 62-mile ride from Wilmette to Kenosha. You will join 100 riders on a scenic route from the Chicago suburbs up to historic Simmons Field. At the finish line, you’ll enjoy a hot shower and a post-ride celebration. The celebration includes a barbecue dinner and a Kenosha Kingfish baseball game. Following the game, you and your bike will have transportation back to Wilmette.

Join our passionate community of riders, volunteers, families and friends in the Chicago area. Fundraise to helping students, healthcare workers and entrepreneurs in the field.


A Specialized Dream Bike

The top fundraiser (who raises at least $10,000) will receive a Specialized S-Works frame of his/her choice (limited availability) outfitted with SRAM Red components and Zipp wheels. This bike will be valued over $10,000.


100 riders riding 100 kilometers and raising $100,000!*
