    We’re done this ride for the last 5 years, the past 3 on a tandem. Very nice course that is well supported. Nice way to end the season, although the weather can be iffy, 2015 was riding all day in the rain.

    A great Gran Fondo that is very reasonably priced and very well organized. Some of the roads were fairly heavily trafficked, but in general the route is safe and well designed, especially for experienced riders. I’d recommend it.

    While I did enjoy the ride (even in the rain, not the organizers’ fault), I really signed up for this event for the opportunity to meet Bob Roll. He was gracious and took time to talk to me and my family as well as sign autographs. A top cycling celebrity would keep me coming back every year!

    Our whole family had an excellent ride during the 2016 Gran Fondo. We towed a Chariot Trailer with our daughter and the race staff was very accommodating and didn’t charge us an entry fee for her but still gave her a race bib for her memorabilia folder. The post-race food was delicious and we really enjoyed the opportunity to meet several cycling celebrities including Bobke himself, Bob Roll!
