The Gran Fondo allows more casual riders to “become a pro for a day,” with routes being held on portions of the same course the pros compete on during the Joe Martin Stage Race. This year's event will consist of five new road courses and two gravel grinder courses, with options ranging from 13 to 85 miles.
All races start and finish at Walker Park in Fayetteville, with the first kicking off at 6:00am. Cheering on racers at the finish line is an amazing experience and certainly should be on any cycling enthusiasts Fayetteville bucket list.
