The Hobbiton Movie Set Gran Fondo marks the return of an iconic mass participation cycling event featuring the picturesque surroundings of the Home of Champions.

A Gran Fondo is a mass-start, timed cycling event, run over closed and open roadways, with full support and post-ride podium presentations. In short... it's the closest most of us will ever come to knowing what it feels like to be a full-on bike racer... and... it could be the most fun you've ever had on a bike!.

Gran fondo means long distance or great endurance.

Some cyclists ride for the satisfaction and pride of just making it to the finish line. Others want to improve upon their previous times, and to challenge themselves, their friends, their teammates. And some ride to win! Regardless, every Gran Fondo event is an unforgettable cycling experience!
