On September 22, join us for the final event of this year’s Spin the District series, the ultra-grand Gran Fondo. Italian for “Big Ride,” the Gran Fondo includes a 10-mile family fun ride, plus 30, 60 and 100-mile road options that travel through scenic South Fulton, Coweta, and Carol Counties. The adventure starts and ends in beautiful Union City, home to stunning parks, wide open spaces, and the largest film soundstage in the country.

We’ve spun a wide range of routes this year. We’ve got three paved rides: our fully-synthetic Polyester100, smooth-as-silk Rayon60 and comfy Velour30. There’s also our brand-new hard-wearing gravel-blend ToughSkin150, and its crop-length counterparts, the Husky100 (a plus-size mixed-gravel route for those who’ve narrowly outgrown the proverbial kids’ department) and the Denim60 (resilient, but relaxed). Whatever your style, there’s a curve-hugging ride here that’ll fit you like a glove.

And no matter which route you ride, expect a hero’s welcome at the finish line, because you’re awesome.

MORE THAN A RIDE. IT’S A PARTY, TOO!
We invite cyclists and spectators alike to join us in Union City after the ride for live music, food trucks, and a BMX stunt show. We’ve got more surprises up our sleeve, so watch for updates on events (and join us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) as we continue to release details about the full day of fun.

Prize / Race Categories

PRIZES
We want our Gran Fondo participants to ride the ride the way they want to ride. Fast, slow, medium-fast, lightspeed—we’re here for all of it.

If you’re the type to take your time, stop and smell the pavement, and really experience the route’s stunning natural scenery, be our guest. All participants who complete this course will receive the satisfaction of a tough job well done and an exclusive Spin the District embroidered patch. (Good luck finding either one on eBay.)

In addition, the first-place finisher regardless of category for both men and women will also receive a year of fame on our website and social media, and this giant, badass belt. (It won’t fit through your belt loops, but your pants will stay up from sheer intimidation.)
