SURPRISINGLY CHALLENGING AND FUN

You may not associate Maryland with climbs, but Gran Fondo Maryland has one of the highest ratios of elevation gain per mile of any Gran Fondo National Series event. But don’t worry, the perfect pavement and cooler early fall temperatures make this one of our most popular events. 

SHORT DRIVE FROM DC OR BALTIMORE

Frederick, MD is a very unique town and a fantastic place to bring the family. The Gran and Medio courses also pass by Camp David, the longtime country retreat for United States Presidents. The smooth, contoured road surfaces and quiet country environment lead us to believe Frederick County could be the best cycling destination in North America.

CELEBRATION OF SUMMER FITNESS

With proximity to huge cycling communities in Washington and Baltimore, and an early fall spot on the calendar, Gran Fondo Maryland is where cyclists go to celebrate their summer fitness before the cold weather comes. Some ride hard, and others just cruise, but everyone wants to get back to Frederick to enjoy a great meal!

SAFETY AND SUPPORT

With lots of turns that could lead you astray, you’ll appreciate the carefully marked and marshaled course, and you can ride with confidence due to support from law enforcement, safety motos, mechanic and sag vehicles, staffed feed stations, and indoor bathrooms along with hot showers await you at the finish line.
