2021 Bike and Beers Series - The Most Fun on Two Wheels!


Test Gran Fondo

May 10 - May 11 2019
Seattle, Washington, USA

Rescheduled from May 22nd this is the full length Fondo ride or the 70 mile medio route.

The Plymouth Gran Fondo is a challenge ride showcasing the finest riding in Plymouth, West Devon, Dartmoor and East Cornwall, from stunning waterfront and coastal areas to magnificent historic houses and breath taking landscapes. Whether you’re a local rider looking to challenge yourself on some of the best riding in the area or you’re visiting Plymouth for the first time you’ll be astounded by what the city has to offer in terms of cycling. Join us on Saturday for a day of cycling before retiring to enjoy the many cafes and restaurants of Royal William Yard. Sunday offers cyclists two choices of riding; the 103mile Gran Fondo, the plenty hard enough Medio (76miles).

Last year's event was a massive success and highlighted the great cycling on offer in the Tamar Valley region. This year we take things a step further with our new home at Royal William Yard, a wonderful venue for any event but perfect for an enhanced rider village, more family activities and closer access to the route with a water taxi out onto the route from the yard itself.
