OUR THOUGHTS ARE WITH MERCED AND ALL THOSE AFFECTED BY THE SEVERE WEATHER.
We are saddened to share this news, but we and the City of Merced as well as it’s surrounding communities, have come to the hard decision to postpone our 2023 Gran Fondo Hincapie-Merced gravel event to March 16, 2024.
During a recent planning visit to Merced, we determined the gravel route designed for our March 18th event will not be ride ready due to the recent storms in the area. It is our responsibility to ensure the safety of not just our riders but our supporting emergency service personnel and volunteers who help make our events possible.
We stand with Merced and the surrounding affected communities as they work to rebuild and recover.
Join George Hincapie in 2024 for a true gravel cycling experience through the rolling hills and open grasslands of California’s Central valley. Our first West Coast Gran Fondo Hincapie starts in the heart of Merced, CA and takes you on an epic adventure into the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Celebrate your adventure afterwards at our family festival, with free food and beverage.
We're hitting the gravel roads and taking our Gran Fondo Hincapie Experience to Merced, CA! From celebrity cyclists to catered food at rest stops, Gran Fondo Hincapie is known for its high-end experience.
