Our exciting Gran Fondo travels through 70 miles of beautiful horse farms dotted on rolling hills with live oak trees and Spanish moss gently swaying in the warm Florida sun. With 3 timed sections, the competitive part of our ride is challenging enough for the highest level racing cyclist or the first time competitive cyclist who wants to give racing a try. Don’t care about racing? No problem, the 70 miles is still perfect for anyone who just enjoys helping the arts and promoting cycling.
THIS IS NOT A POINT-TO-POINT RACE. The Gran Fondo features three timed segments and $2,000 in cash prizes distributed across the top ten places, men and women. The cash award is paid 10 places back; as follows: 1st place: $300.00, 2nd place: $200.00, 3rd place: $150.00, 4th place: $125.00, 5th place: $100.00, 6th place: $50.00, 7th place: $25.00, 8th place: $20.00, 9th place: $15.00, 10th place: $15.00.
