Join George Hincapie and cycling stars of the past, present and future on picturesque rides through the city and adjoining area of Chattanooga, Tennessee. After completing the ride, join family and friends for a fun festival. Complete with free food and beverages, live music and rides for the kids, this festival is a great way to cap off the day.

Live Tracking

You’ve been training for months. Now it’s time to show it off. Using the Gran Fondo Hincapie App, your fans can track your progress from the minute the ride starts to the moment you cross that finish line.

Live Streaming

Oh yea! We all saw that celebratory fist pump. With live streaming across all courses, your family and friends can watch your ride from anywhere in the world.

On-site Viewing Screens

If your fans are on-site but aren’t the cycling type, they can relax by a large screen and watch the live stream while sipping a beer.

Celebrity Cyclists

George’s friends from all over the world join the ride. Announcements coming soon!

Rocking Rest Stops

Not only are our rest stops stocked with water, energy gels and a variety of fruit and food. They also include live music from some of the most talented local bands. So while you stretch and recharge, the music will keep your adrenaline pumping.

Free Family Festival

You just put in some miles. It’s time to celebrate. Which means activities and bouncy houses for the kids, and craft beer and a big pot of paella for you. All FREE. Yep, you deserve it.

Comprehensive Timing

Some gran fondos record your total ride time. Others time your climbs. We time both. Go ahead—brag away.

Three Rides

No matter your skill level, there’s a route for you. The 80-mile Gran packs in plenty of epic climbs and challenging descents, while the 15-mile Piccolo is great for beginners. Can’t decide? Try the Medio.

Safety First

Support SAG wagons, neutral support, a team of police and EMTs, and more than 200 road volunteers. We’re committed to making sure you’ll have the safest experience possible.

Exclusive Prizes

We’ve got the hookup. Last year we awarded Canyon bikes to our first-place winners. Need we say more?

Scenic Views

From riverside routes to rides through a historic dam and the beautiful city of Chattanooga, no matter which ride you choose, you’ll be pleased with the scenery.

VIP Packages

Breakfast with the pros, tickets to the Celebrity Chef Dinner, warmup ride with George … Take your experience to the next level.
