GRAVEL FONDO

The G3 Gravel Series Gravel Fondo provides the same challenges as our Gravel Race but with half the mileage. We recommend this route if you're just getting into gravel, need more experience riding challenging gravel roads, want to ride at a leisurely pace, or want to avoid the racing scene. 

Unlike the Gravel Races, the Gravel Fondo is not timed. We encourage all Gravel Fondo riders to embrace the concept of a true fondo: a 'big ride' where cyclists spin their wheels together regardless of age, ability, category, or experience. The goal of a Fondo is to finish the ride rather than to win; therefore, we do not have Gravel Fondo podiums. All riders who complete the Gravel Fondo will receive exclusive finishers' swag.
