Mt. Everest -- not a part of this ride


The Timed Hills


The Gran Fondo Catskills features five timed hills. The numer of hills you pedal varies depending on which route you pick.  


NOTE: There are no timed hills on the 30-mile route. Still a fantastic ride with plenty of challenges, great scenery, an adult beverage or two, and a lot of fun. You will be on the exact same route as everyone else -- you just save a few miles.
