Do you know what a Gran Fondo is?  It’s the latest thing in endurance long-course cycling.  Based on a format developed in Italy, the Gran Fondo is a competitive cycling event that attracts elite and recreational riders alike.  Much like the marathon in running, the Gran Fondo allows you to set the terms yourself for your involvement.  Ride hard with a time goal in mind, or come out for a fun, supported ride.  Either way, it’s a great way to experience the sport while building your strength and endurance.

I’ll be riding myself in the upcoming Gran Fondo National Championship on September 22d in Frederick MD.  Come join me!
