Live Tracking - You’ve been training for months. Now it’s time to show it off. Using the Gran Fondo Hincapie App, your fans can track your progress from the minute the ride starts to the moment you cross that finish line.

Celebrity Cyclists - George’s friends from all over the world join the ride. 

Rocking Rest Stops - Not only are our rest stops stocked with water, energy gels and a variety of fruit and food. They also include live music from some of the most talented local bands. So while you stretch and recharge, the music will keep your adrenaline pumping.

Free Family Festival - You just put in some miles. It’s time to celebrate. Which means activities and bouncy houses for the kids, and craft beer and a big pot of paella for you. All FREE. Yep, you deserve it.

Comprehensive Timing - Some gran fondos record your total ride time. Others time your climbs. We time both. Go ahead—brag away.
