Bookwalter Binge Gran Fondo
The Bookwalter Binge Gran Fondo is a top flight fondo format in North Carolina. Every year, dozens of world tour pro cyclists are invited to the event making it a pro-am of sorts in the cycling world. You will get to talk and ride with some of the sports very best which is a unique experience few fondos or cycling events have in America at the time being. The 2020 race has been canceled but a solid, concrete date has been set for October 2021. The routes at the Bookwalter Binge are simply hard. Like most Fondos, there are route variations with the Binge having three; Piccolo, Medio, and Gran. The Piccolo is 39 miles but boats a large 3,000 feet of climbing. THe Media is 55 miles with 4,500 feet of climbing. And finally, the Gran stretches 77 miles and boasts a whopping 6,250 feet of climbing with three gravel sections! Better get your sealant ready! The Bookwalter Binge Gran Fondo is a top flight cycling event in North Carolina, the Mid Atlantic, and America in total which makes it an event definitely worth traveling to.
