Road Cycling in Mexico - A Gran Fondo in Paradise
Our second annual Gran Fondo is approaching and will take place on December 4th. As a special surprise, we will soon be releasing details of a new Individual Time Trial and Team Time Trial to take place the day before on December 3rd.
The Velo Bike Time Trial course will have incredible views and challenging roads. There will be an Individual Time Trial (ITT) and a Team Time Trial (TTT) category to choose from. The course is a 15.2 km loop that starts and finishes in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle. This challenging loop has a total elevation gain of 189 meters. It will be especially challenging for those who opt to do the 4 up TTT as it will require teams to stay together over several up and down sections along the coast as well as a final climb and descent back to La Cruz.
