Gran Fondo

Pinarello Gran Fondo Start A Gran Fondo, known as a Cyclosportive in French, is a long-distance cycling event that is cycling’s equivalent of a marathon. Raced by the elite few at the front, for the rest of us, they serve as the ultimate personal challenge of distance, course, and clock. Well organized and expertly supported, they are some of the most popular cycling events in the world. Often with thousands of participants, entry can be difficult, not to mention finding the best hotels and restaurant reservations.
 
Velo Veneto takes out the worry, concern, and confusion. We offer training leading up to the event to prepare you, advice on the route, and full support before and after the event. Each camp will show you the best rides in the area, is based out of the perfect hotel, and will show you the top local cuisine.

For 2016, we will offer special trips to the following Gran Fondos:
May 31 – June 6 – Gran Fondo Stelvio Santini
June 28- July 4 – Maratona Dolomiti (Official Tour Operater – guaranteed entry!)
July 11 – la Pinarello Cycling Marathon (Pinarello Gran Fondo)
Sept. 26 – Oct. 2 – Levi’s Gran Fondo (Official Tour Operator – VIP entry)
