Hincapie Gran Fondo
Thursday, October 23 – Sunday, October 26
Join the JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes team as we partner for the first time with the Hincapie Gran Fondo!
Watch George Hincapie talk about why you should join the JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes as we partner for the first time with the Hincapie Gran Fondo. You have never seen a JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes like this.
JDRF riders, along with more than 1,000 avid cyclists, will join George Hincapie and other stars of the cycling world for a challenging ride through the hills and valleys of upstate South Carolina. View the leaves changing as George and his fellow professionals lead you along the same roads he has trained on for races like the Tour de France and Paris-Roubaix.
Cyclists can choose from three routes―Gran, Medio, and Piccolo—along the scenic Blue Ridge foothills. Each route varies in distance and intensity and provides exciting challenges for cyclists.
The Gran and Medio routes are for experienced, well-trained cyclists who are comfortable riding hills, narrow roads and twisting descents. The Gran Fondo presents a challenge way beyond any other JDRF Rides with more than 8,300 feet of climbing! Please note: this is not a Ride for beginners. JDRF recommends completing at least one century Ride before registering for this Gran Fondo.
