Introduced as the first “European style” GranFondo to Sonoma County nearly a decade ago, Levi’s GranFondo has become the premier ride of its type in North America attracting tens of thousands of riders and their families for a truly authentic celebration on two wheels.
Now with over 11 routes, Levi’s GranFondo has an adventure for everyone, including an eight mile family route, challenging dirt/gravel options, and Il Regno – a massive 116.8-mile route with 10,503 feet of climbing. The routes are designed to showcase the legendary terrain and coastal redwood forests previously included in the Coors Classic, and multiple editions of the AMGEN Tour of California.
New for 2017
- GranFondo Referral Program – Friends receive 15% off and we have compiled a list of incentives for each referral.
- Youth under 24 ride FREE.
Levi’s GranFondo is produced by Bike Monkey, and inspired by former professional cyclist Levi Leipheimer. “We are excited to bring more youth to our event so they can experience first hand, the spirit and adventure of riding a bike at a GranFondo,” says Leipheimer. He adds, “I always wanted to give back and share the joy I found in cycling with others. The GranFond was the best way I knew how to do this.”
Bike Monkey founder Carlos Perez says, “Speaking to our core values, we are fortunate that we have been able to continually produce an event that is considered an industry leader in terms of the ride experience and production quality, but also set really high standards with what we are able to give back.”
Join Levi Leipheimer for the best ride on two wheels. $2 million has so far been raised for at-risk youth.
