The Gran Fondo Prosecco was devised in 2006 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 De Rosa 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.
Thursday 26th September 2019 to Monday 30th September 2019.
Your GF Prosecco challenge is on Sunday 29th September 2019
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 the GFProsecco. 2,500 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 5,000 cleats clicking as you roll out from the start through Valdobbiadene’s classic Italian piazza.
Your sign-on at Villa Sandi’s beautiful winery includes free food, more Prosecco, and your goody bags will include a bottle of Villa Sandi Prosecco Superiore, local pasta, cheese and probably a pair of Prosecco Cycling socks. In past years participants have even been treated to helicopter rides at 10 euros a go. The GF Prosecco is a total cycling and Prosecco immersion.
There is just one course on the Gran Fondo Prosecco (This link shows you the 2018 distances which may change slightly for 2019)
Includes the 18% Ca’ del Poggio where Prosecco and tasty scampi bites, ‘tipico Italiano’, are served at the top.
