The acclaimed Gran Fondo Hincapie cycling series returns to Fort Worth for the second year in 2020, this time at a new location: Sundance Square Plaza.

The 2019 ride was overwhelmingly successful, bringing more than 1,000 cyclists from around the world to Fort Worth for a weekend filled with cycling, gourmet dinners and a live recording of Lance Armstrong’s “THEMOVE” podcast.

The March 28, 2020, ride promises to be even bigger, with proceeds benefitting FitWorth, a family-focused nonprofit promoting healthy and active lifestyles through health education and events.

The original Gran Fondo Hincapie in Greenville, S.C., now in its seventh year, has topped charts and received stellar reviews, acclaimed for the cycling celebrities in attendance, as well as the careful attention to safety, onsite viewing screens, course and segment timing, live tracking and streaming, live bands at the rest stops, and free family festival.

Key components of the Gran Fondo Hincapie series are standard routes of 15, 50 and 80 miles, as well as the high-end customer experience, highlighted by a celebrity chef dinner the evening before the ride.

Register for the ride and festivities.
