The Gran Fondo, a national series of cycling events that take place in various locations across the U.S., will return to Golden on Aug. 26.
Cyclists will begin the Golden Gran Fondo race at 8 a.m. underneath the arch in downtown Golden on Washington Avenue. Finish will be at Parfet Park, located at 10th Street and Washington Avenue.
Awards ceremonies will take place at approximately 3 and 4 p.m. in Parfet Park. The public is welcome to attend.
This road race is not a start-to-finish race — time sections will determine placement. Cyclists have the option to race the Gran Loop, 91 miles; the Medio Loop, 63 miles; or the Piccolo Loop, 20 miles.
Spectators are welcome to set up along the route to cheer on the cyclists. However, all safety measures should be taken as there is no official place assigned for spectators. Those who would like to watch the race should visit the Golden Gran Fondo’s website to discover the route for spectator planning at www.gfncs.com.
