Gran Fondo NJ was established in 2011 with the goal of putting on the best cycling event in the US in a socially conscious manner.
In 2016 Gran Fondo NJ was named the #1 Gran Fondo in the US by Gran Fondo Guide (up from #3 in 2015). Over the first 5 years, the event and its participants have raised over $750,000 for both Local and National Charitable Organizations.
The event is held the first Sunday after Labor Day (September 11th for 2016) and offers over-the-top rest stops on its routes of 107, 75, 62, 42 and 18 miles. On the four longer routes there are timed hill climbs on the toughest climbs on the routes for those looking to test their climbing legs and try and earn one of our coveted KoM/QoM jerseys.
