Sam Miranda Gran Fondo

 
 
 
 
Saturday 26th August 2017
 
The 6th annual SAM MIRANDA KING VALLEY GRAN FONDO, challenge yourselves, friends or colleagues over 115km’s of challenging terrain in the picturesque KING VALLEY. In true ‘GRAN FONDO style this ride has full event timing and is a mass participation ride held in conjunction with the ‘SAM MIRANDA TOUR OF THE KING VALLEY’ NATIONAL ROAD SERIES RACE. The circuit is a mix of quiet country roads, unique climbs including the famed ‘Strade Nero’ to Whitlands, a great descent into Whitfield and rolling countryside and vineyards. After your ride chill out in the event village with food, Sam Miranda Wine, Bridge Road Brewery beers and Genovese Coffee, live music and watch the finish of the afternoons racing.
Start will be from 8:30am with riders departing in waves. (Just after the Men's NRS event departs)
The 2017 circuit has been slightly modified from previous editions. While there is some sections of dirt/pave they are in really great condition and you won’t need any more than your regular 23mm or 25mm tyres (all the pro's ride 25mm!)
