The Grand Fundo is similar to a gran fondo, but more fun! I first heard of the FUNdo three years ago. It’s a ride in Jeremy Powers’ (Jelly Belly Pro Cycling Team and Team Rapha Focus) training ground. It would be a no-drop ride and there would be a party after! How often am I going to get a chance to ride with pros and not get dropped? I would be crazy not to go.

I participated in, the first event two year’s ago, which more than exceeded my expectations. At the start of the ride, I looked to my left and there was Lyne Bessett riding along beside me. The ride is challenging with over 20 miles of dirt roads. The first half of the 65-mile ride is mostly up hill. There is also a longer and hillier option called the HUNdo because it will feel like a hundred miles. The rest stop has an ice cream truck with drinks and, of course, ice cream.
