Reminiscent of a Spring Classic like Tour of Flanders or Paris Roubaix, the Strade Nero is a challenging 5km section of gravel road that rises into the King Valley. At the top of main climb, you will descend into the sleepy town of Whitfield before heading back to the beautiful vineyards of the Sam Miranda Winery. Once the ride is complete, feel free to relax and enjoy your included Mediterranean lunch, followed by a cheeky glass of vino. In conjunction with the Sam Miranda Tour of King Valley, riders of the Gran Fondo will cycle the exact same route as the NRS professionals and get to see the exciting finish of the races.
The Gran Fondo is a 126km one-day event ride consisting of scenic routes, and the infamous 5km gravel section!
Located in the heart of the King Valley, this event will combine picturesque routes, challenging climbs and quiet roads, creating a truly memorable cycling experience for all levels of cyclists.
Anyone! The Sam Miranda Gran Fondo is suitable for road or gravel bikes, and will test and reward all riders that participate.
