Join over 4000 other cyclists for a Gran Fondo highlight in the north-east Italian cycling scene. This is a fantastic end of season celebration of the Prosecco harvest. You will line up for Prosecco Cycling Gran Fondo 2018 in the centre of Valdobbiadene and set off to Nesun Dorma opera. Waiters wave wine bottles at them from the Fondo start line and then it’s a short climb before setting off for a fast, winding descent through the hills and Prosecco vineyards of North-Eastern Italy. This is a brilliant and typically Italian Gran Fondo cycling event. Very much an end of season celebration of riding and wine and food – seafood is served half-way up the last climb on the long course.
