FLORIDA’S HARDEST GRAN FONDO

Arguably the “easiest” event of the Gran Fondo National Series based on total elevation gain, but with nonstop rolling hills it’s the hardest gran fondo in Florida and rewards riders who can work well in groups.

SUNNY CENTRAL FLORIDA LOCATION

San Antonio is small town in central Florida, surrounded by picturesque horse farms and orange groves. The quiet roads are great for cycling and it’s conveniently located one hour north of Tampa and 90 minutes west of Orlando. Come in early or extend your stay to visit the beaches in Tampa and St Petersburg, or the Walt Disney World theme park in Orlando.

FESTIVAL ATMOSPHERE

Gran Fondo Florida is the center of attention in San Antonio, closing down Main Street for our start, finish and post-ride party! Spend the day working together on the road and then swap stories with new and old friends over great food, cold beer, and live music.

Stay for the famous Gran Fondo National Series Raffle!

HAPPY HOUR

Join us and get to know your fellow riders for a Happy Hour at Flint Creek Outfitters in Dade City from 6:30-7:30 PM on Saturday. Drinks and appetizers will be served.

SAFETY & SUPPORT

Enjoy the convenience of early packet pickup and happy hour at Flint Creek Outfitters in nearby Dade City. Ride with confidence on the marked and marshaled course, supported by law enforcement, safety motos, mechanic and sag vehicles, as well as feed stations staffed through local youth police program.

Beneficiary

This event raises funds for Pasco County SRO Explorer Program. The School Resource Officer (SRO) Unit is composed of two squads that provide law enforcement services to schools countywide. The SRO Explorer Program provides services for those aged 14-21
