NJ Highlands Gran Fondo Results 2013
500 riders enjoyed a fantastic Gran Fondo at the weekend with perfect weather with temperature's in the 70's.
The Highlands area is a 1,343 square mile region of Northern New Jersey which is noted for its scenic landscape and environmental importance. Much like this ride, the area is composed of rolling farmland, hilly ridgelines, and winding roads that weave up and down the lush green mountains. Riders enjoyed the diversity of the beautiful terrain and scenery, and the route took them through three counties and two states.
As the loop progressed so did the elevation, the gran loop contained 9,000 vertical feet of climbing. The event exposed riders to roads you never thought could be tucked away so close to one of the biggest metropolitan areas in the country.
The next event in Gran Fondo Championship's series is a new event, the Boone Gran Fondo, August 4th, Boone, North Carolina.
