GRAN FONDO RUSSIA: the first cycling race will take place in Suzdal
On July 9, the first cycling race of the international series Gran Fondo will take place in the Suzdal district of the Vladimir region. Many participants of the races come from different cities of Russia and the world, so the organizers decided to expand the geography of the starts.

Traditionally, participants can choose one of three distances: 30 km for amateurs, 57 km for confident cyclists or 114 km for the most enduring cyclists. Unlike the previous Gran Fondo in the Moscow Region, there will be no racing format in Suzdal, only the format of the race is preserved. Another distinctive feature of Gran Fondo Russia on July 9 will be the route: for the longest and average distances - the circular route. At the end of the event, all participants will receive commemorative medals and their personal time to complete the route.
