SPORTIFS

A sportif or Gran Fondo as the Italians call it, is a long distance, organised, mass-participation cycling event, typically held annually. Many cyclists use sportifs to challenge themselves in a personal battle against the distance or beat their PB. Some will ride the event like a race while others will take it easy and enjoy the surroundings.
