Gran Fondo Hincapie Returns to Fort Worth in 2020 in New Location

Sundance Square

The Gran Fondo Hincapie-Fort Worth ride will start and finish at Sundance Square Plaza on March 28, 2020.

The acclaimed Gran Fondo Hincapie cycling series returns to Fort Worth for the second year in a row, this time at a new location: Sundance Square Plaza in downtown Fort Worth. The Plaza is located at the center of Sundance Square, a 35-block development filled with shops, restaurants, and entertainment.

The 2019 ride was overwhelmingly successful, bringing more than a thousand cyclists from around the world to the city of Fort Worth for a weekend filled with cycling, gourmet dinners, and even a live recording of Lance Armstrong’s “THEMOVE” podcast.

The 2020 ride promises to be even bigger, with proceeds still benefitting FitWorth, a family-focused nonprofit focused on promoting healthy and active lifestyles in the community through health education and events.

The original Gran Fondo Hincapie, located in Greenville, SC, and now in its seventh year, has topped charts and received stellar reviews, acclaimed for the cycling celebrities in attendance, as well as the careful attention to safety, on-site viewing screens, course and segment timing, live tracking and streaming, live bands at the rest stops, and free family festival.

Key components of the Gran Fondo Hincapie series are standard routes of 15, 50, and 80 miles, as well as the high-end customer experience, highlighted by the Celebrity Chef Dinner the evening prior to the ride.
