The fifth annual Gran Fondo Brevard is coming to the Space Coast January 16-17, 2016! The multi-distance cycling event will take riders on a scenic tour through the Space Coast. Participants can choose to ride the 35 mile Piccolo Fondo, 64 mile Medio Fondo or the full 107 mile Gran Fondo route.
The selected charity for this year’s event is Promise in Brevard, a local organization dedicated to helping individuals with special needs. All of the proceeds from the 2016 year event will benefit the Promise Community Fitness Center.
Gran Fondo Brevard’s event weekend will kick off Saturday, January 16 with an expo, seminars, and VIP dinner. The Gran Fondo, Medio Fondo and Piccolo Fondo will begin Sunday morning and will be followed by a post-ride party with food, drinks and celebration.
Former pro-cyclist Robbie Ventura will return this year with his Vision Quest team, as will former Tour de France competitor Kevin Livingston and his Pedal Hard team. Of course, the Promise team will be on board greeting guests, volunteering and creating great memories for everyone involved.
This year’s event also offers great opportunities for riders to earn great incentives through fundraising. Fundraising incentives include a Gran Fondo Brevard jersey and tickets to the VIP dinner with promisers and the pros.
