The event includes 3 different Gran Fondo, and we won’t miss a single one!

On thursday we will start our cycling trip climbing climb the legendary Monte Grappa! On the second day, we will then move to Pizzola sul Brenta, that runs along the banks of the Brenta river, where we will ride the last 40km of the SERENISSIMA GRAVEL and we will enjoy the lunch buffet, thanks to the VIP hospitality that will allow us to be in the front row for the arrival of the pro cyclists.

Third day, the main event! On saturday we will ride the Gran Fondo VENEtoGO that with its landscapes and refreshment points, perfectly combines the pleasure of cycling with the other pleasures, for the eyes and for the palate, that the territory can offer.

Sunday will be the Veneto Classic, international and unique race that brings in our land leading names in the cycling scene, will be ridden also from us in its last 50km.

DETAILED PROGRAM

Our reward at the top is lunch at the mountain refuge at the top, then the downhill return to our hotel, and dinner in a local restaurant.

DAY 2 – Serenissima ride

FRIDAY 18 OCTOBER 2024

Today we will have the opportunity to watch the professional gravel race, the Serenissima.

In fact, you can even walk along the wall for the incredible views.  We will have lunch in Cittadella, and then we’ll get the chance to watch the pros.  Dinner will be at our hotel in the evening.
