Welcome to the inaugural Mt. Lemmon Gran Fondo

A Cycling Hill Climb.   

Lastest News:

 To all our friends and supporters of the Mt Lemmon Gran Fondo, we

address you today to bring you news of a transition taking place that will

affect this years event.  It is with a heavy heart and positive outlook

towards the future that we announce the Inaugural Mt Lemmon Gran

Fondo will be rescheduled to take place in April of 2015. 

The decision to postpone and reschedule the event was not an easy one

to make.  After many hours of deliberation, the organization, along with

it's many supporters, voted unanimously to postpone the Inaugural

event.  This will allow for a greater time frame for delivering a high

caliber world class event worthy of such an iconic mountain and the

greater community of users that reside and recreate on Mt Lemmon.

This will act as the first of many updates and announcements we plan to

make in the coming days and weeks to keep everyone informed of the

various changes taking place.  As you can imagine there are many moving

pieces to putting on an event of this magnitude, and we want to be

absolutely sure that this is a sustained world class event for everyone to

enjoy for many years to come.

We are deeply grateful for the support and understanding we have

received through this process as we continue to look positively and work

productively towards the future.

To all registered participants, a full refund will be issued within the next

two weeks.  A confirmation email from will be sent when

your refund has been processed.

We would like to Thank You in advance for your patience as we continue

to provide you with up to date information regarding this announcement

in the days to follow. 

With Gratitude,

Mt Lemmon Gran Fondo

The ride starts at 6:am from the base of Mt. Lemmon and finishes in the “Alpine like” setting of Ski Valley.  The climb is approximately 26 miles with over 6000 feet of climbing and has an average grade of 5% going up to 8%.  This is an EPIC ride and a must do if you are into climbing.
