Gran Fondo New York was founded in 2011, when we brought the authentic Italian amateur bike racing event granfondo to the world’s greatest city. A granfondo is like a marathon where athletes compete against each other, themselves and the clock, and do their best as a personal challenge.

At each GFNY event, you will enjoy

  • Closed roads or police moderated traffic with right of way at all intersections
  • The chance to do your best on a challenging course without having to worry about anything but riding
  • Chip timing, results and rankings
  • Competition prizes across all age groups
  • The chance to qualify for an elite corral starting position at the inaugural GFNY Championship in NYC
  • Uniform set of rules
  • great participant and family experience
