The lucky riders who joined us on April 6, 2014 enjoyed picture-perfect weather, delicious food, and a lovely day out on the roads. At the Start Line in Little Italy, we spotted Olympic medalist Nelson Vails, Tom Kattus, the head of Campagnolo North America and numerous riders from the Challenged Athletes' Foundation. Riders on the Piccolo, Medio, and Gran Fondo routes returned to the B Street Pier where Acqua AL2 awaited with handcrafted pasta meals, and the Sierra Nevada Beer Garden beckoned. Cyclists and their families relaxed, enjoyed the live band, and visited the Vendor Expo. All in all, the 2014 edition was an epic event.

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.
