The Ride
Challenge yourself to the competitive spirit of Levi's GranFondo and Experience Sonoma County's world class roads and wine region at their best. This event was is the brainchild of professional road cyclist Levi Leipheimer, and rivals some of the toughest stages of the world's most difficult road races. There's nothing else like it.
This should be on every cyclist's 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 fondos 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 fondos 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 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.

Now made in America!

Each and every year since the start we produce unique, custom work that symbolize our ride in a variety of ways. Design, and aesthetic is important to us when it connects the story of togetherness. For our 10th anniversary, we produced a jersey that included a mass of cyclists coursing through the open road of Sonoma County. It was subtle, but carried meaning.

This year, we commissioned the creative work of American cyclist and artist TJ Eisenhart who has created something distinct, and unique-a departure from our norm of sharp lines. Bright, beautiful, and now made in California, America by our friends at Voler. Such a thing has been a long time in the making,... even overdue. Please enjoy.

Voler x Imaginary Collective
Our jerseys are now made in California, America!

Designed by cyclist and artist TJ Eisenhart in collaboration with Levi Leipheimer and our combined vision for Levi's GranFondo, this year's 2023 jersey takes a turn in an entirely different direction. Wear a true work of art at this year's starting line. We will offer two styles of kit in both men's and women's.

Routes for All

Since inception, Levi's GranFondo has offered routes for a wide range of fitness and ability levels. From a casual ride on relatively flat ground through our bucolic wine region to a highly competitive 138.5 monument that easily rivals some of the toughest stages in the Tour de France. Each one utterly full of wonder.

Piccolino: 22 Miles (NEW!)

The Piccolino route is petite, introductory 22 mile ride through picturesque wine country. It's a great match for beginner road cyclists. It does not feature a formal aid station, however you may stop at Veteran's Memorial Beach in Healdsburg to top off water and take a break.

Piccolo: 40 Miles

The Piccolo route is a relatively easy 40 mile jaunt through picturesque wine country next to vineyards and gently rolling hills. It splits the difference between a beginner ride and the Medio. It's easy, but it's 40 miles of easy.

Medio: 63 Miles

The Medio route is the quintessential Sonoma County weekend ride. It features two aid stations evenly spaced for you to top off, amazing, fast-rolling tarmac with a mix of vineyards and two notable climbs.

The Geysers: 81 Miles

The Geysers route is a completely new flavor of Sonoma County and brings you up some serious climbs to accumulate over 6,000' of elevation in 81 miles. You will ride through a region that is home to North America's largest producer of clean, reliable renewable geothermal power, and experience sweeping views of Sonoma County's wine region.

Gran: 120 Miles

When we reimagined Levi's GranFondo, we couldn't imagine it without the retention of the signature road from which it started: King Ridge Road is the signature of the Gran route. But it's quite different after reaching the original King Ridge aid station. Turning north, you then take on a completely new set of roads high above the surrounding hills of Sonoma County. Your return to the gently rolling valley floors comes at the price of taking on two more long, steep climbs along Stewarts Point Road.

Growler: 139 Miles

The Growler is a behemoth with a signature level of difficulty that rivals some of the most difficult professional road race courses in the world. After tackling King Ridge, you then take on a completely new set of roads that travel like the spine of a dragon's backbone high above the surrounding hills of Sonoma County. Your return to the gently rolling valley floor comes at the price of taking on two more long, steep climbs along Stewarts Point Road. It's not nearly over. The Geysers, and another 3,000' of difficult climbing awaits long after you've already amassed nearly ten thousand feet of elevation over the course of the previous 90 miles.
