The Gran Fondo Prosecco celebrated 20 years in 2023 and added a Gravel Event of circa 70km. It was such a success it is now a standard feature. So if the road Gran Fondo is not your thing then try the Gravel event, which is on the same day and wind your way through the beautiful Vineyards.
The Gran Fondo Prosecco was devised in 2003 to not only celebrate the end of season wine harvest and celebrate everything Italian gastronomically, but to also attract a growing number of international cyclists and tourists to this beautiful area. Villa Sandi and Basso Bikes are the primary sponsors. The end of race celebrations in Valdobbiadene’s piazza includes more Prosecco, tables of tasty bites and the evening’s pasta party is a riotous affair, not to be missed.
I have personally ridden this event on 14 occasions and enjoyed it every time. The event is run in the region where my family live so I am familiar with the area that’s just one reason to join me in 2023 along with an excellent service.

Your GF Prosecco challenge is on Sunday 29th September.
The Gran Fondo Prosecco has to be the best end-of-season Italian Gran Fondo in the calendar. If you like Prosecco, you will love this event along with 2,200 other cyclists, on closed roads, racing through the Prosecco vineyards and rolling hills. Imagine this scene. Italian cyclists in their multi-coloured kit and mahogany tanned legs. Music booming, then a cannon cracks the air as gold flakes descend from the sky at the start. The crowds cheer and your ears will be assaulted with 4,400 cleats clicking as you roll out from the start through Valdobbiadene’s classic Italian piazza.
There is just one course on the Gran Fondo Prosecco (This link shows you the 2018 distances which may change slightly for 2020)
Includes the 18% Ca’ del Poggio where Prosecco and tasty scampi bites, ‘tipico Italiano’, are served at the top with Prosecco Wine.
