Gran Fondo Hincapie Merced

March 18, 2023


A promising new event on the California early 2023 season gravel calendar, produced by Hincapie Events, whose namesake is former world tour rider George Hincapie, best known for riding and completing the Tour de France 16 times.  The specific event route has not been announced. Still, you can expect full enjoyment of untamed gravel, rolling hills, open grasslands of California’s central valley, and foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

This is Hincapie Events’ first foray into a gravel event and first event on the West coast.  Hincapie produces several popular annual Gran Fondo events in Bangor, ME, Chattanooga, TN, Lehigh Valley, PA, and their signature event, Greenville, SC.  Since retiring, Hincapie has parlayed his cycling fame into a multi-faceted business career that, in addition to his cycling team, includes: Hincapie Sports, a line of high-performance cycling ware; Hotel Domestique (Greenville County, SC), which caters to cyclists.

The Gran Fondo Hincapie experience is not just a “big ride”–they are designed to be multi-day cycling celebrations, including scenic and challenging routes, live music, and a family festival with free fun, food, and brew.  It’s a chance to join thousands of cycling pros, celebrities, weekend warriors, and first-time riders in the excitement of the Gran Fondo Hincapie hosted by George and the family. Typical routes included distance options of 15, 50, and 80-mile rides on the most bike-friendly routes mapped and tested by George himself. The events are chances to connect with other cycling enthusiasts and show off your passion, no matter your skill level.
