Granfondo 23 May – 182km

Start Time for Granfondo is 8.00am

The Granfondo route is ideal for more experienced cyclists who want to challenge themselves over a longer distance. The route has plenty of variety and is not just climb after climb. There are several flat fast sections interspersed with some tough climbs and undulating roads.

All routes will follow the same roads until you reach Stroud.

We recommend that you carry two spare inner tubes, tyre levers, pump and a puncture repair kit. It is not uncommon for riders to suffer punctures during sportive events. Ideally you should also carry a lightweight folding multi tool, available through any good cycle store.

Although feed stations en route will be well stocked with energy drinks, water and food, please consider taking energy gels or food of your own and at least one water bottle on your bike.
