Delaware Gran Fondo
May 17 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Brandywine Valley offers some of the best cycling terrain on the East Coast.
Experience one of the most scenic cycling routes in the U.S. as the Wilmington Grand Prix’s 8th Annual Delaware Gran Fondo offers cyclists the unique opportunity to traverse a challenging 100-kilometer course linked by 13 cultural attractions, including stunning rides through world-class institutions such as Delaware Art Museum, Hagley Museum & Gardens and Winterthur Museum, Garden and Library. The Delaware Gran Fondo will allow cyclists the rare privilege of passing through these attractions on the same ride.

The Delaware Gran Fondo is 100km (62 miles) long. The Media Fondo is 50km (31 miles) long.
Participants will receive a welcome packet including a commemorative Tshirt, USA Cycling rider insurance, course marking, four aid stations, two timed climbs (Gran Fondo only), completion medals (Gran Fondo only), competition prizes (Gran Fondo only), post-ride party, raffle prizes, bike valet service at festivities and more.
