This section was new for 2020 (but has been updated each year)
We do not release the course maps to the greater public. Why? Because we spend hours and hours setting up our event courses and getting permits and permissions and do all this for the event. We will give out some course descriptions.
What Type of Bike is Best for a Gravel Fondo
Any bike is best but specifically a bike with fatter tires in order to run lower pressures. This could be Gravel Bikes, Cyclocross bike, Mountain Bike, Hybrid Bike, Touring bike or Road Bike. (and yes even e-bikes) You do not need Suspension like on a Mtn bike but road bike tires with high pressure and hard gearing (although you can do it on that kind of bike) is not that comfortable and the gearing is usually too hard. We will be providing specific information for each type of bikes with tire sizes and gearing for the event.
How do the Teams work. We have teams of 2 and teams of 4 categories. It is the combined time of all 2 or all 4 Team members and the lowest combined times wins.
