About the Grand Fundo 63
In the cycling world, a gran fondo is a massive group ride/race, that can attract riders numbering in the thousands, encompassing all ages and ability levels. The Grand Fundo removes all the racing aspects from the ride, but keeps all the all the fun. We have titled this ride a Grand FUN-do, because we think it could be the most fun you’ll have on a bike this season. The route will take 4-5 hours for most riders, and include roughly 6,000ft of climbing. The classic Fundo route is 63 miles and the course includes over 60-70% dirt roads. We will have multiple rest stops along the route and of course our famous ice cream truck rest stop! There will be lots of support riders and follow cars through out the day with wheels, tubes and mechanics. Immediately after the ride, we hope you’ll stay and hang out with us for music, and a delicious post ride cookout, our prize draw and of course, more ice cream!
About the Fundo 29 (Mini)
The Mini Fundo features the same challenging beginnings of the Grand Fundo, but will get you back home more quickly. If you are looking for 2.5-3.5 hours of riding and want to experience the Grand Fundo, but aren’t sure you can survive the full Fundo, then the 29-mile Mini Fundo is for you. Once you return, snacks will be available until our barbecue starts at 1:30 PM.
The Mini Fundo is by no means a walk in the park. Over the course of 29 miles, the Mini Fundo will climb over 2400 feet and ide through technical sectors of double track.
