Raised for at-risk youth in 2016.

This should be on every cyclist bucket list. This event changed my life. Last year I was 300 pounds got disgusted and then bought a Roubaix SL4, signed up for the Piccolo and started training, When last years day was arriving I started having panic attacks as I am also a veteran with PTSD and decided to back out. At the last minute I got in my car, drove from Tahoe to Santa Rosa checked in and everyone was kind and supportive. Since then, I lost 100 pounds and rode the Medio. It was an incredible experience, making it to the coast and chewing up the road with fantastic vistas. Once again, thanks Levi and the rest of the crew, most importantly the volunteers who get this event going.

I have done quite some gran fondo's in my life, all of them in Europe including classics like the Nove Colli, the Marmotte, Amstel Gold Race etc. Levi's GranFondo is by far the best organised event with a great route and amazing finish street. This is a must-do for every cyclist!
~Ward Grootjans, Participant
With many European and American gran fondo's and Sportifs this one is by far the best so far in the US. Great route, support, views and vibe.
~Stephen Marquette, Participant
It was an amazing experience. All the riders and the other supporting people (police, helpers, people at the roadside) brought a great atmosphere which I felt all along the ride. Excellent organization made me feel safe and well supported in any moment. Thanks and see you next year!
~Gernart Brandl, Participant
I'm amazed at the community of this event. Firefighters, Ambulances, Sheriff's, CHPs, and all the volunteers. It's takes a village..this event is the best example of this idea I've ever seen. Period.
~Richard Colorado, Participant
Simply awesome day on the bike. The Panzer course has Alpine style climbing and descents, beautiful redwood forests, spectacular ocean views, and just a few hills . . . Plus the best organized and marshaled ride I have been on. Outstanding 2016! See you next year.

Vendor Expo

Friday September 29, 2017

On the eve of the big ride at Santa Rosa's Finley Aquatic Center we host a giant vendor expo during packet-pickup. Flush with sponsor booths, food and beer, it's great fun for the whole family.

Eleven Route Choices

There are 11, yes ELEVEN route options, and to-date not a single rider has done them all at Levi's GranFondo. We provide you with options ranging from a short 8.5 mile flat segment for kids and families of all ages to the famed Panzer 116 mile course with 8 festival stops and 10,000' of vertical gain.

THE FABLED FESTIVAL

Grab your kids, friends and loved ones. You don't have to ride to find your place at Levi's GranFondo. Our FondoSonoma festival begins at 10:00am promptly for all to enjoy. FREE to the public, it is a magical day for the whole family, flush with live bands, stacks of food, vendors and a fun zone for the kids. Bring your bikes and park them securely for free in our gated and staffed bike parking area.

As a rider you'll have filled your day with so many experiences it'll take weeks for you to recount them all. Top it all off with the post-ride FondoSonoma and you'll find no equal.

FOOD & BEVERAGES

Come back to a smorgasbord of food and beverage options to replenish your mind and soul after your two-wheeled pilgrimage.

KIDS ZONE

Let them loose at the kids fun zone so you can get that much-earned early night when you get back to your hotel or home.

LIVE ENTERTAINMENT

A zoo of fun begins when you get back to the FondoSonoma festival. We serve up multiple forms of entertainment and bands as a focal point to our festival.

FREE SECURE BIKE PARKING

Whether you've finished the ride or just come to the festival, we offer free secure bike parking for all visitors. It's quick, easy and you can put your mind at ease while you graze on the FondoSonoma festival.

THE NUTS AND BOLTS OF THE MACHINE

The impossible is made possible with the level of on-course support we throw at you when you roll out of Santa Rosa. Here are a few of the things we provide:

We Start Together

The experience is epitomized by our mass-start. Our GranFondo is a very special collective celebration of the bike, and the best roads in one of the best places on earth.

The Cadre of Marshals

At Levi's GranFondo we envisioned and built a legendary marshal program led by experts in statistical analysis and rider pack behavior. Expertise and service that lends to our capacity to cater to each and every rider throughout the day in a way no other organized event can match. Period.

SRAM NRS and More

Not only do we provide you with dozens of official GranFondo SAG support vehicles and moto marshals, SRAM supports our ride with their Neutral Support Services and continuously go above and beyond the call of duty to see you home.

On-Course Villages

Your experience is made complete by the provision of villages along the way to stop and recover. The longer your ride distance, the more you can visit--up to seven for the longest of routes including a full lunch area on the Gran and Panzer routes. The whole objective is to blow your mind, which we will. Guaranteed.

MAKE THE MOST OF IT

You can come for the day. But if you can come for longer, you should. Here's why.
