Gran Fondo Eddy Merckx - Lake Garda, Italy

All Things Ride presents a chance to ride and experience the fantastic adventure of the Alé La Merckx Granfondo race. We base you at the Lake Garda Bike Hotel due to the excellent facilities in addition to having fantastic cycling facilities.

While not as well known to UK riders, this event is another must do Gran Fondo. First of all you pass the headstone in memory of Shakespeare “There is no world without Verona walls…”.  The Gran Fondo Eddy Merckx then allows cyclists to ride together on two beautiful courses. In addition, the route runs exclusively through the province of Verona and divides after roughly 70 kilometers. The Gran Fondo Eddy Merckx Mediofondo offers 85km & 1250m of climbing. Gran Fondo Eddy Merckx Granfondo offers 139km, and 2500m of climbing.

At the finish line, the “Maestri del riso” (the Masters of rice) will welcome the tired but satisfied riders to restore them with the rice party which will be held in the prestigious scenario of Palazzo della Gran Guardia situated in Piazza Bra.

Make this event the focal point of your next cycling holiday with us and enjoy the great services we have put together to support you at this event!
