The Bookwalter Binge Gran Fondo is a top flight fondo format in North Carolina. Former UCI pro rider Brent Bookwalter is the event namesake and every year, dozens of world tour pro cyclists are invited to the event making it a pro-am of sorts in the cycling world.

The Medio 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!
