The Rock Gran Fondo, sponsored by American Rock Salt, offers riders of all abilities the chance to tour the scenic roads and take on epic challenges. The event is non-competitive but has timed results, rest stops, killer swag, timed Strava segments on some routes, and a post-ride party at one of the Finger Lake’s premier wineries, Deer Run.
This year we are only accepting 100 riders! All riders get a meal ticket, event socks, a bottle of Deer Run’s Ciclismo, entered in our free raffles that feature Castelli Duffle and Rain bags and Once Agan Nut Butter products as well as live music at our post-ride bash from Mid-Life Crisis at our post-event party.
The event starts and ends at Deer Run Winery on Conesus Lake. The Rock Gran Fondo is the first day of the American Rock Salt Race Weekend. The fondo is followed by The Rock Crit.
With a new location for our fondo, we are offering new courses highlighting some of the most challenging and exciting riding anywhere in New York State.
Although we provide timed results, all fondos are non-competitive events expect for our Strava competition where riders must upload their full ride on our Strava groups to compete. Strava segments are optional and even on timed climbs, all riders must follow the rules of the road as they navigate the course with our well-marked event signs.
