Mountain climbs worthy of a grand tour, with the character and grit of a classic!
Jeremiah Bishop’s favorite training route earned its nickname with glorious mountain top meadows, winding climbs and hillside farms reminiscent of the Austrian, German and Swiss settings where he has competed.
Now this magnificent scenery is the backdrop for the most challenging and adventurous Gran Fondo in the United States. The route begins in Harrisonburg, Virginia and covers 95 miles featuring 11,000 feet of climbing.
The Alpine Loop Gran Fondo provides the opportunity and inspiration for individuals and teams to take on great challenges in support of worthy causes. All event proceeds will directly support community charities, local schools and cycling infrastructure.
