Our classic 105-mile Gran Fondo Route includes the “Great Western Loop”, a San Diego favorite that cruises through East County’s backcountry and climbs to a maximum elevation of 2,600 ft. The Gran Fondo Route boasts 5,000 cumulative feet of elevation gain, the Honey Springs Climb, and five well-stocked aid stations.
The Medio Fondo Route stretches from the Pacific Ocean to the San Diego backcountry and Otay Lakes in Chula Vista. In terms of both distance and elevation gain (1,500 ft), the Medio Fondo is well-balanced between the longer and shorter route options. It offers three well-stocked aid stations.
By popular demand, we will continue to offer the 34-mile Piccolo Fondo Route. Designed for riders who want a Gran Fondo experience, yet prefer less riding distance, this route features a flat-to-rolling course with two well-stocked aid stations and just 900 total feet of climbing.
Added for 2015 is a 20 mile Fun route. This route is perfect for beginner riders.
