The Rollfast Gran Fondo
The Rollfast Gran Fondo is Indiana's first and only Gran Fondo. It isn't a race - it's a timed event. It is intended to be a relaxed, safe, social and fun atmosphere for anybody with a bicycle.
The Rollfast Gran Fondo consists of 3 route options of varying lengths. Approximately 25, 60 and 100 mile options will be available for riders of all abilities.
The Rollfast Gran Fondo is more than just a bike ride. It's a full blown family friendly festival of fun! Admission to the festival is free, the public and all ages are welcome.
What is a Gran Fondo?
"A Gran Fondo is a mass-start, timed cycling event, run over closed and open roadways, with full support and post-ride podium presentations. In short... it's the closest most of us will ever come to knowing what it feels like to be a full-on Italian bike racer... and... it could be the most fun you've ever had on a bike!
Many cyclists use Gran Fondos to challenge themselves in a personal battle against the distance and then ultimately, the clock. Some participants will ride the event like a race, with prizes awarded and considerable prestige for top place finishers.
This ride is for EVERYBODY
Don't be intimidated. YOU can ride a Gran Fondo at any pace you choose, and no matter what your speed or competitive nature, a big event like this is guaranteed to be an experience unlike anything you've ever done before.
The routes will usually be well sign-posted and/or marshalled (some Gran Fondos take place on roads which have been closed to motor traffic for the duration of the event), riders will be able to use feeding stations positioned at intervals along the route to replenish their food and drink supplies and mechanical and medical support may also be provided. Some attract thousands of participants.
