From the rugged mountains of the West to the rolling hills of the east with its diverse landscapes, challenging terrains, and well-maintained roads, the United States offers a unique experience for all types of riders. 

The USA has a rich cycling culture and a supportive cycling community, making it the ideal cycling. The USA is also home to some of the best Gran Fondos in the world, attracting thousands of cyclists worldwide every year.

The four best American sportives are;

  • Gran Fondo Hincapie is organized by former professional cyclist George Hincapie. It’s popular not just for the scenic route in Greenville, South Carolinas, but also for the post-ride party with live music, food, and drinks.
  • Levi’s Gran Fondo, located in sunny California, features many distances to pick from, including an 8-mile ride geared toward families. The Growler (138.5 miles) is very challenging, with the route going above 13,000 feet.
  • RAGBRAI, the Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa, is a seven-day adventure across Iowa. It starts in Le Mars, Iowa, and ends in Clinton, just east of Cedar Falls.
  • Gran Fondo New York City (GFNY) brings the top cyclists together from around the world for a grueling 100-mile course through the city that doesn’t sleep and beyond. The course takes riders through the historic Palisades and up Route 9W before you head north to New Jersey and the tree-lined roads in New York State. 

This article lists all the Gran Fondos in the USA for the year.
