The six new events in the 2021 calendar are:

Some events that were to join the series in 2020 will make their real appearance in 2021 after their cancellation this year in the international health context of the COVID-19 pandemic. These events are the Around Samcheok (Republic of Korea), the ALE Granfondo Banja Luka (Bosnia-Herzegovina), the Granfondo Moscow (Russia), the Gran Fondo Dnipro Race (Ukraine), the Granfondo Suisse (Switzerland) and the Classique des Appalaches (Canada).

The other rounds have been on the calendar of the UCI Granfondo World Series for several years.

Riders finishing in the top 20% of their age group at one of the UCI Gran Fondo World Series races automatically qualify for the 2021 UCI Gran Fondo World Championships.

The 2021 UCI Gran Fondo World Championships will take place in Banja Luka (Bosnia-Herzegovina) from 1 to 5 September 2021. Participants can look forward to a 22 km flat time trial in the city centre, a team relay and a 155 km Granfondo or 96 km Mediofondo, both of which will take place on hilly roads. The riders will already be able to test the courses during the qualification event organised on May 8th and 9th.

North America hosts three events; the Cheaha Challenge Gran Fondo and Utah Gran Fondo in the United States, with the Classique des Appalaches in Canada.

United Kingdom hosts two events; the Tour of Cambridgeshire and the Granfondo Isle of Man

Australia hosts two events; the Gran Fondo Australia and the Tour de Brisbane.
