The Giro di San Diego GranFondo began in 2012. It’s a celebration of all things cycling, a two-day festival with five mass-start, timed cycling events for road and mountain bikers, a Bike & Fitness Expo, and a post-ride party. By popular demand the date has been pushed back five weeks to cooler weather, now scheduled for late October.

The new 105-mile GranFondo Route features Mt. Palomar and an area called The Mesa Grande, a serene and picturesque loop in the little-known back country of San Diego. A new Palomar Metric Century has been added for those who want to try out this legendary climb. Often compared to France’s Alpe d’Huez, Palomar is a fabled climb that has been featured twice in the Tour of California bicycle race. The Giro now features four Road Routes: 35, 60, 66, and 105 miles as well as the Ninja Trail Quest Mountain Bike Ride.
