This year we've added even more fun and adventure to the mix with 2 fantastic choices...
Gran Fondo, the Original
Everyone loves it...so we're keeping it relatively unchanged. Approximately 70-75 miles of Southern Pulaski County by-ways taking advantage of two scrumptious rest stops. It'll be the main event...and once again a capped audience will ensure your enjoyment.
About half the Gran Fondo distance and without all those rollers...so perfect for the more leisurely group ride. And like last year this course still finds its way to the Wrightsville rest stop...definitely worth the trip.
We keep it smaller than other rides for a reason...to maximize care. You won’t find service like ours on any other ride...from start to finish...and at every stopping point in between. Who says you can’t take Concierge service on the road.
Our goal when we started this adventure in 2014 was to put on one heck of a party...wrapped up in a cycling event. By all accounts we've done just that. And this year will not disapoint. We're still finalizing our culinary line-up, musicians and other coolness. But it will be Big and Delicious...guaranteed.
The Food Festival is located at the Gran Fondo start/finish line which will be located at HIA headquarters at 2201 Brookwood Drive, Little Rock 72202. Doors open at 11 am. Food will be served at 11:30.
The price remains unchanged at $125 for the full distance Gran Fondo and $99 for the shorter distance Medio Fondo. Both rides are fully supported...and as close to guaranteeing a good time as you can get. The full Gran Fondo includes two delicious rest stops...Medio alas only one.
Extra Food Festival tickets for friends and family are $35.
Cancellation, Transfer and Refund Policy
Cancellations- Cancellations are accepted through May 10th. 100% of your registration will be refunded less $25 (covers the cost of initial registration fees and our time to process the refund). Please email us to initiate a cancellation request.
Transfers- Transfers are welcome anytime up to 24 hours prior to ride start. You are welcome to transfer your registration to anyone as long as they accept the terms covered in the registration. There is no fee to transfer a registration. Please email us to initiate a transfer request.
Refunds- As you can imagine, most of our costs are incurred prior to the actual event (they call it sunk for a reason). Respectively, there will be no refunds even if the event is cancelled, let’s say due to severe weather. However, if we cancel or stop the race for safety reasons, we will offer all registrants an opportunity to transfer their registration to a future event.
