Wondering what a Ciclismo Classico bike tour is like? Why not join us at Wrenegade Sports' innovative Farm to Fork Fondo series in the U.S.? These events mix many of the same signature elements of our bike tours into an affordable weekend package that is as much about the fun and food as it is about the cycling. Any of this year’s eight events is a great way to get ready for your first Ciclismo Classico bike tour—or stay in shape for repeat bike tours with us. The Farm to Fork Fondo series was created to highlight and support the symbiotic relationship between cyclists, farmers, and beautiful landscapes. A delightful blend that mirrors the Ciclismo Classico mission for our European bike tours.
These weekend rides are filled with culinary delights made from ingredients sourced from traditional farms along scenic routes. Chefs who specialize in farm-to-table dishes whip up gourmet feasts worthy of kings for hungry foodie cyclists. Even better, these organized rides allow you to choose the distance that suits your level and pace—just right for beginners. And no matter which distance you choose, you'll get to taste the amazing locally inspired cuisine.
Roughly translated into English as "big ride," the Italian gran fondo is a traditional road bicycle ride dating from 1970. And, of course, as with most events like this in Italy, a large meal is served to the participants at the end of the event. Perfetto!
