The Florence – Firenze Gran Fondo is one of the youngest and most interesting events on the Italian scene. The Gran Fondo Firenze has brought a cycle race over the Ponte Vecchio bridge. After crossing the enchanting historic city center, it climbs up into the hills of Florence in the direction of Fiesole and Mugello. The finish is on the “wall” of Via Salviati, made famous by the 2013 World Cycling Championships: 134 km of exacting climbs, exhilarating descents and incredible scenery. The Medio Fondo (95 km) follows a very similar route, but shorter and with an altitude gain of “just” 1100m, against the 2000m of the Gran Fondo.
