Gran Fondo China open for Registration
The online registration for 2016 Colorful Yunnan International Granfondo Cycling Festival has now been opened. The event, which will take place from 6 to 12 November, includes again 5 stages and 2 rest/transfer days.
As previously announced, the five stages again take place in five different cities: Kunming, Yuxi, Chuxiong, Dali and Lijiang. Compared to last year, the cycling course in Kunming and in Lijiang has changed significantly. In fact, in Kunming we see the return to Dianchi Lake as in 2014. You can read details about the five stages in the relevant sections of this website, just check the top menu and click on the city tab.
Importantly for this year's participants: the organisation committee offers free hotels for 7 nights to those riders who register for all 5 stages! In this way, participants can enjoy the event without too much hassle. The hotels are Hanting-style hotels, which means basic, but clean and functional. These are not the official event hotels, but will be located nearby, The offer is for one bed in a shared twin room. You can select a roommate if you know someone, otherwise the organisation committee will assign a roommate for you. If you want more comfort, you can of course also book yourself into the event hotels, information of which is also available in the logistics section of this website.
Please note that, again, the free hotel offer is only valid if you sign up for all 5 stages. If you do fewer stages, please make your own arrangements.
As always, bus transport between the stages is also included in the race registration fee.
Directions from Kunming airport and railway station can also be consulted on the offical wesbite
If you are part of a team, you can also do a team registration and have your team ranked in our team competition. Teams must consist of five riders, can be of mixed gender. Each stage, the times of the best three riders of each team will count for the team result and ranking. Team composition must be fixed before the start of the first stage, and cannot be changed afterwards.
