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 feature great ride options for everyone – 13, 25, 55, and 85 miles – on the road or for the more adventurous – 44, 70 miles – on gravel. Not quite ready for the open road option? Then hit the paved Razorback greenway for any distance you choose! Everyone will meet back up at the finish line for great food and drink!
Cheering on racers at the finish line is an amazing experience and certainly should be on any cycling enthusiasts Fayetteville bucket list.
