The Campagnolo Gran Fondo San Diego is one of North America’s Top Gran Fondo’s, attracting cyclists from over 32 states and over 20 countries worldwide. While the ride grows in popularity each year, it maintains its charming, friendly, and intimate atmosphere.

The event begins and culminates on San Diego’s waterfront with finisher medals, beer garden, four-course Italian feast, and live music.

Some may ask why a GranFondo would offer shorter ride options, organizers say, “The GranFondo Experience should be fun for everyone. We want to grow the cycling community by encouraging the love of cycling and encouraging everyone to get out there and ride. We’ve had many riders start out at lower mileages and come back year after year with the goal of conquering one of the longer rides.”

 “It’s all about believing in your abilities and being brave to push yourself to discover what you’re truly capable of both physically and mentally.”

San Diego shares Italy’s temperate Mediterranean climate, and riders can look forward to cycling in ideal temperatures ranging from 60 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit on event day.

The Campagnolo Gran Fondo San Diego is proud to support Life Sports Foundation. `Life Sports Foundation is dedicated to helping people of all abilities who are facing physical, situational, or medical challenges to enrich their lives through sports. This year fundraising efforts at the Granfondo San Diego will support San Diego’s Foster Youth Sports participation and extracurricular activities. The beer garden will be taking donations to buy running shoes for foster youth to encourage healthy lifestyles, and including in sports.

Although fundraising is not required it is greatly encouraged. The Ride organizers show their thankfulness by providing a free ride entry and Jersey to any rider raising $600 or more. Corporate fundraising and teams are encouraged.
