From the Promoter:
In memory of our great mate, he Gran Fondo course extends further north than the Medio and enjoys more stunning hinterland scenery & the picturesque towns of Cooran, Kin Kin & Pomona.
The Gran Fondo includes several additional sectors of ‘strade bianche’; the ‘white’ or gravel roads with the punishing Shadbolt Road climbs and white-knuckle descents off the ‘Gap’ and ‘Gentle Annie’.
For 2018 we have brought back ‘Passo Jampot’. Jampot Creek Road hasn’t featured since 2012. This is a memorable climb for all the right reasons!
Several refreshment stops will provide water, bananas and other free delicacies. Expect other delicious treats at the other refuelling stops on the northern loop! Don’t forget to stamp your Brevet Card.
In Kin Kin, the Black Ant Cafe and Kin Kin Hotel can also be tempting for weary riders.
Approximately 2000m of vertical climb.
