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 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.
I have personally ridden this event on 12 occasions and enjoyed it every time. The event is run in the region where my family live and I am familiar with the area that’s just one reason to join me in 2020 along with an excellent service.

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 2,500 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 5,000 cleats clicking as you roll out from the start through Valdobbiadene’s classic Italian piazza.
