Gran Fondo means many things to many people. Loosely translated, it means everything from "great foundation", "great distance" or "great endurance". It can be a full-on race, or just a ride. It's both a sporting event and a cultural experience. And it's truly Italian. There's nothing like it anywhere else in the world.
Gran Fondo's were invented in Italy in the early 1900's and have been a part of the Italian cycling culture and tradition for over 100 years. Take a scenic course and add several thousand cyclists ranging from pros to eighty + year-old cycle tourists. Mix in a roving and fixed mechanical and medical support, feed zones manned by cheerful volunteers serving up sandwiches, fruit, and drinks, and traffic halted at intersections to let you pass. Garnish with enthusiastic and supportive spectators lining the course. Top it off with coverage by major cycling magazines. Energy, excitement, atmosphere!
