Team Type 1 Tour of Georgia Gran Fondo

April 18, 2021 - Helen, Georgia, USA

NOW OFFERING SUPER GRAN COURSE

One of the most challenging Gran courses in the Gran Fondo National Series, and one of the only events to offer an even harder Super Gran course, this event delivers a genuine sense of accomplishment for all finishers. Medio and Piccolo routes are scaled to provide challenges appropriate for shorter distances.

BAVARIA IN THE APPALACHIANS

The third-most visited town in Georgia, Helen is a unique mountain town styled in a Bavarian theme. About two hours from major airports in Atlanta, GA and Greenville, SC, Helen is adjacent to the beautiful Unicoi State Park which is packed with family fun.

SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY

Experience Southern hospitality with a Bavarian twist! A smaller peloton, compared to other GFNS events, also helps create a tight-knit family atmosphere on road and at the post-ride party with North Georgia BBQ.

SAFETY AND SUPPORT

The Tour of Georgia Gran Fondo routes are difficult to ride unsupported because the roads are remote and stores are few and far between. Ride these marked and marshalled courses with confidence, supported by law enforcement, safety motos, mechanic and sag vehicles, as well as staffed feed stations.
