Gran Fondo is an Italian term meaning "big ride." The Virginia's Blue Ridge Gran Fondo will feature three different routes -- 33, 45, and 75 miles. Each route has been carefully created to showcase Botetourt's County's rich scenic beauty and it's warm & welcoming communities. Riders will enjoy the area's natural beauty including the rolling terrain, open farmland, forested mountains, and the James River. Each route will also feature memorable aid stations and charming small towns.
New for 2020! We've moved the start/finish to beautiful downtown Fincastle, the county seat of Botetourt County, which is celebrating its 250th anniversary this year. Come experience the local charm and the cool vibes of this historic village. The post-ride gathering will be at the new 1772 Rooftop on Main. We know times are uncertain now due to COVID-19. In the event we have to cancel the ride, we will refund 100% of your registration fee.
Start/Finish: Courthouse Square, 1 West Main Street, Fincastle, VA 24090
8, 9, & 10 a.m. starting times
