Visit us at the Grand Fondo-NJ

September 08, 2018•11:00 AM

Hyatt Morristown, 3 Speedwell Ave, Morristown, NJ (Unless otherwise noted)

A Celebration of Cycling

Gran Fondo NJ offers five routes of increasing levels of challenge, from the extremely challenging Gran Fondo down to the relatively relaxed Breve Fondo. We were one of, if not the first, Gran Fondo to offer a Breve length route for those not up to the challenge of a longer route, but wanting to partake in the festive atmosphere of a Gran Fondo.

Our goal is for you to have fun, be challenged, and never have to look at a cue sheet during your ride. Each of our six rest stops is stocked with the usual fare you would expect on a challenging ride, and featured treats that will surprise you. With timing only on the hill climbs, we offer a serious athletic challenge for our competitive participants, with the ability to wait at the tops of the climbs for others in your group without worrying about "losing time".

A surprise to many, Gran Fondo NJ offers some of the most beautiful and challenging cycling terrain in the east. Our 62-mile Medio route was named by the editors of Bicycling Magazine to their list of "The 50 Best Rides in America."
