2018 Ride for the Arts Gran Fondo

Now in its fourth year, the City of Ocala presents the 2018 Ride for the Arts Gran Fondo. There’s a ride for all levels. The 70 mile Gran Fondo, the 40 mile Medio, and the 15 mile Piccolo, an escorted ride for kids, families, and beginners. The Gran Fondo and Medio routes have timed segments and cover beautiful and challenging rolling hills dotted with giant live oak trees draped with Spanish moss. Cyclists will ride through Horse Capital of the World passing majestic horse farms with paddocks full of mommas and their spring babies. Hundreds of cyclists, will leave from Brick City Center for the Arts, Marion Cultural Alliance’s home in downtown Historic Ocala. The City of Ocala is the Presenting sponsor.
