The New Zealand Gran Fondo sits alongside the Vantage Elite Road Nationals as part of New Zealand’s Cycling Festival – RIDE.
The NZ Gran Fondo comes in three forms, The 100km, brought to you by Hobbiton Movie Set and the 67km ride and the 18km, powered by Winger Suzuki.
The Gran Fondo is in it’s third year, showcasing some of Waikato’s most scenic and challenging roads.
The 103km course is designed as a challenge for all who take part. The race culminates in a party atmosphere in the park where each rider will be awarded their finishers medal.
The Corto Fondo is a chance for perhaps the first timers, mature riders or youthful participants to be part of the ride and the atmosphere. Winger Suzuki are right behind this event to support as many people as possible to enjoy the day. This ride requires an adult to accompany any children under the age of 11 for safety reasons.
