TT1 Tour of Georgia Gran Fondo, April 18th 2021 - REGISTER NOW!

Boone Gran Fondo

August 01 2021
Boone, North Carolina, USA

APPALACHIAN MOUNTAIN ROLLERCOASTER

The rural roller-coaster roads around Boone are a ton of fun, and quite challenging. The climbs aren’t very long, but that means there’s not a lot of time for recovery on the descents, either. This is a great course for all-around riders. This is one of the 4 events in 2020 to have the elevated Super Gran route.

WESTERN CAROLINA’S COOLEST TOWN

In mid-summer, the High Country of North Carolina enjoys 80-degree temperatures while the surrounding East Coast temperatures hover in the high 90s. Early August is a prime time to be in Boone!

SUPPORTIVE FAMILY ATMOSPHERE

The laid back atmosphere of this western North Carolina college town is contagious. One of the smaller fields for a Gran Fondo National Series event, the Boone Gran Fondo has a supportive, family feel, particularly when we all gather for great local food, cold beer, and fantastic raffle prizes after a challenging and competitive ride.

SAFETY AND SUPPORT

Most cyclists can’t discover how great the riding is in Boone because long loops are difficult to self-support. But you can ride with confidence on the marked and marshaled course, supported by law enforcement, safety motos, mechanic and sag vehicles, and staffed feed stations.

BENEFITING 

The mission of the High Country Breast Cancer Foundation is to support breast cancer patients, survivors, and their families in the High Country of North Carolina. While many wonderful organizations hold events locally, some of the money they raise in the High Country is usually taken out of our community and used elsewhere. We are an all-volunteer organization and 100% of the funds we raise remain in the community.
