Rollfast Gran Fondo

Rollfast Gran Fondo

September 16 2018
Carmel, Indiana, USA

The Rollfast Gran Fondo is Indiana's first and only Gran Fondo. The Rollfast Gran Fondo consists of 3 route options of varying lengths. Approximately 25, 65 and 100 mile options will be available for riders of all abilities.

The Sub 4 Challenge

Since the inception of the Rollfast Gran Fondo it’s been a fast ride. The course is flat and sheltered from most wind by tall Indiana corn. In 2015 a challenge was submitted to finish in under 4 hours. Several local teams worked together and 25 finished under the 4 hour mark.

In 2016, word had spread across the borders of the United States into Canada and even Puerto Rico. “This is one fast event.” New riders traveled and conquered the SUB4 Challenge.

In 2017 we officially embraced the challenge with added neutral moto support, finisher belt buckles and a presentation ceremony for the Sub4 Finishers!
