|About This Event|
Garden State Fondo, formerly known as Gran Fondo NJ is the Northeast’s premier cycling endurance challenge.
For almost a decade, Gran Fondo NJ has made thousands of cyclists fall in love with the Garden State: A place on earth filled with good things to eat and endless green rolling hills and quiet farm roads to ride on. Over the years we turned our corner of the Garden State into an immense cycling playground and built one of the most vibrant cycling communities in the nation.
Gran Fondo NJ produced cycling experiences for kids through adults, introduced the 5 star rest stops concept to big rides, became the advocacy force behind cycling infrastructure and cycling safety improvement, developed the first sustainable cycling event in America, energized towns across New Jersey around the sport, and created the best finish line block party in cycling.
From day one Gran Fondo NJ’s mission was to bring all levels of people to face and respect the unique beauty and geography that the Garden State has to offer. Gran Fondo NJ was never about attacking a mountain with brute force, but about becoming one with nature. It is about respecting the characteristic of our terrain, developing the technique to ride rolling hills, mastering nature and using the Garden State’s unique geography cunningly.
Becoming one with nature through physical challenges is in the heart of the human experience for thousands of years, and a major force in everything we do. Name is not just an identity, but a home. The Garden State Fondo name strengthens our focus on creating sustainable cycling challenges in one of the most beautiful, greenest and best kept secret corners of the USA. It’s where we want ourselves and the event to thrive.
The Garden State Fondo is all about harnessing the amazing experiences that Gran Fondo NJ provided cyclists in the past while increasing focus on our core value: Challenge people at all levels to experience something truly incredible on their bikes in an environment of natural beauty they didn’t know still existed.
