Fountain Hills Bikes and McDowell Mountain Cycles have teamed up to offer this unique ride around the Fountain Hills area.  Two distances are available, 50K (35 miles) and 100K (65 miles). This will be a fully supported ride for everyone with sag support and two aid stations along the route.  Both routes start at McDowell Mountain Cycles and end at Fountain Hills Bikes. Both bike shops will provide snacks and refreshments at the finish. The two bike shops are two miles apart for those who care to park at MMC for the start and finish at Fountain Hills Bikes.


We’ve posted the route links below and will have paper copies available at the start. All riders will be required to sign our riders’ waver. You can stop in either shop to pre-sign or sign the morning of the event.

What is a Gran Fondo? - Gran Fondos are designed for everyone. Whether you are an experienced cyclist wanting to push your own limits, or you are someone new to riding and want to ride at your own pace, The Fountain Hills Gran Fondo has a perfect ride and group for you! Gran Fondo is an Italian term which very loosely translates to “Big Ride”.
