Gran Fondo New York (GFNY)

May 16

The inaugural GFNY NYC race was held in 2011 and since then, GFNY has expanded to global series of 25 events. GFNY bills itself as the largest global cycling marathon brand.  As you might expect, being NYC, this is a big event.  5,000+ riders lining up no a car-less George Washington bridge is quite a novelty by itself.  Fear not thought, this isn’t a city ride.  The route offers some of the best riding terrain in the region, hugging the New Jersey side of the Hudson River North, crossing the NY state line to Bear Mountain State park, the summit of Bear Mountain, and reversing course through a very hilly section of New Jersey.  The main Gran Fondo route is 100 miles with +8500 feet of elevation gain.  There is also a Medio route at 50 miles with +3500 feet of elevation gain. 

GFNY NYC serves as the GFNY World Championship and every May (cancelled in 2020 due to the Covid crisis).  The race features the most international peloton in the world with riders from almost 100 nations coming together from all corners of the world to challenge themselves against the clock and fellow riders over the iconic route. Campagnolo GFNY World Championship has become a mecca for road cyclists from around the world.
GFNY is a race and personal challenge. Every rider gets chip timed from start to finish regardless if they compete for the win, to set a personal best or just to complete the event.

First and foremost, ALL riders regardless of ability, talent, level or placement in the start corrals can expect to be treated like a Pro For A Day. 

  • The entire racecourse is police-monitored for start-to-finish chip timing of all riders.
  • The course has cheering friendly volunteers and fully stocked aid stations to keep you fueled.
    • The race staff ensures whatever your pace, you will receive the same support and treatment for your entire race.
