Asheville, North Carolina, USA

Mark your calendars for the 4th annual Gran Fondo Asheville, a fun and festive ride on Sunday, July 22, 2018. Road cyclists will take in the natural beauty of Western North Carolina as they cruise along a well-marked course with the option to push themselves for brief timed periods, competing to win. Beginner and avid cyclists alike will find challenging rides to meet their individual goals with courses covering 30-, 60- and 100-mile journeys.  Gran Fondo Asheville is a part of the Gran Fondo National Series.

Discover alluring Asheville, from the unique perspective of your handlebars. Experience Asheville, North Carolina, Lonely Planet’s top U.S. travel destination for 2017. Your ride begins in the River Arts District at New Belgium Brewing Company and quickly moves along well-marked winding roads out into pastoral countryside and up to mountain ridge vistas. At the end of the ride, as you descend from the Blue Ridge Parkway into the heart of town, you will be afforded a spectacular cityscape view and greeted by fellow riders and families back at New Belgium Brewing Company; where you can enjoy the music, vendors, massage therapists, and of course– food and beer!
