Follow our colleague Zac as we transform him from an Average Joe into a Gran Fondo Hero!

This year's event sounds so much fun, not only are the BikeExchange team participating, we decided to 'enroll' (meaning we told him he was doing this) one of our colleagues Zac Birkill into training for and lining up for the 126km cycling event.

Follow Zac's progress week by week as he progresses from the couch to the start line, starting Aug 2, 10 weeks out, on Facebook and Instagram.

About The Event

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.

What is the distance?

The Gran Fondo is a 126km one-day event ride consisting of scenic routes, and the infamous 5km gravel section!

Where is it?

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.

Who can participate?

Anyone! The Sam Miranda Gran Fondo is suitable for road or gravel bikes, and will test and reward all riders that participate.
