oregon gran fondoGran Fondo is Italian and translates approximately to “Big Ride.” Gran Fondo rides have their origin in Italy and France, where the general public was invited to ride a single stage of one of the professional grand tours, the Tour de France, and the Giro D'Italia after the pro race went through. Everyone, of any age and ability, was invited to participate. Ex-professionals and elite racers lined up side by side with 80-year-old farmers toting baguettes in the baskets of their 1920’s era commuter bikes. Family members lined the route and handed out food and water bottles. While some choose to ride fast and test their endurance, by definition, a Gran Fondo is not a race, but rather a mass start event designed to draw the community together and give everyone a chance to enjoy the fun of riding a bike on the same course as the pros.

It is truly a ride for everyone that is up for the challenge!

Gran Route

The Oregon Gran Fondo has routes for everyone — from professional teams, Club Teams and amateur riders.It’s a celebration of cycling that features both competition, and riding just for the fun of it on a 117-mile route.

Route Map

Medio Route

This 71-mile route follows the Gran Route for the first 41 miles and then turns north onto Elk Creek Road (which turns into Buck Creek Road) to Siuslaw River Road, where the course turns east for the return to Bohemia Park. Riders will enjoy seemingly prehistoric forest scenery and fondly remember the 4377 feet of climbing.
