|About This Event|
Who says Florida is flat! Centered in the rolling orange groves of Pasco & Hernando County, Gran Fondo Florida starts and ends at on Pennsylvania Avenue in San Antonio, FL. The race follows, in part, the proposed Olympic road race course that was part of Tampa’s bid to host the Summer Olympic Games. It travels along rural rolling hills, past horse farms and crystal clear springs. Briefly going through Withlacoochee State Forest and the hills surrounding Brooksville, Florida. At the 89 mile mark you will enter a piece of US cycling history along Darby road, once home to the famous Darby Road Race that has seen the likes of Tour de France winner Laurent Fignon. This area is and has been the winter training site of some of the top triathletes in the world including members of the TIMEX team and the hometown of former US National Cycling team members Josh Thornton and Derek Wilkerson.
