Road Cycling is the Focus and Heart of America’s Premier Gran Fondo
Celebrate the culture and community of cycling at Levi’s GranFondo. The race returns Saturday October 3, 2020
(Santa Rosa, CA) - Levi’s GranFondo is a competitive road bicycle race and festival featuring 11 world-class routes showcasing the natural beauty and challenge of Sonoma County’s breathtaking coastal roads. This will be the race’s 12th edition.
Road cycling is thriving in the shadow of the cycling industry’s surge to embrace gravel. This is most apparent at Levi’s GranFondo, which remains the gold standard for road cycling events in Northern California and continues to appeal to a greater number of riders than any gravel race in America.
The race will consist of eleven routes, from an 8.8 mile Family Route to the 117 mile Growler, to appeal to a diverse range of riders. The Gran route is considered the crown jewel of the event, with 102 miles and over 9k of challenging climbs, eye-watering descents, and unbelievably beautiful coastal California scenery.
Families Ride FREE
Expanding on their successful formula of getting more people on bikes, Bike Monkey is opening up the Family Route to anyone, absolutely free of charge. Parents and children are invited to line up at the mass start and roll out en masse for a safe and scenic 8.8mi ride, 75% of which is on a dedicated bicycle path.
U24 Ride FREE
Since day one Levi’s GranFondo has aimed to get more kids on bikes and to meet that goal, Bike Monkey is sponsoring the U24 Ride Free program in 2020. Any rider under the age of 24 on race day is invited to join the ride. All they have to do in exchange is help Bike Monkey spread the word by posting about the GranFondo on social media.
