Gran Fondo Giro d’Italia is a unique and exciting experience for riders of all abilities. After New York, Pasadena and Jerusalem, the event took place in Beverly Hills on November 3, featuring two rides of 48 and 90 miles.
Starting from Rodeo Drive, the cyclists passed through the beautiful Topanga Canyon and Santa Monica Mountains. The 90 miles ride also included the special Gran Premio della Montagna along the scenic Piuma Road.
Hundreds of passionate riders from all over the world participated in the initiative, and part of the proceeds will benefit the local chapter of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation against breast cancer .
Back to Beverly Canon Gardens, the cyclists enjoyed a Pasta Party before the award ceremony in the presence of the Consul General of Italy Giuseppe Perrone, the Mayor of Beverly Hills John Mirisch, and the Director of the Italian Trade Commission Carlo Bocchi.
Gran Fondo is an authentic tour Made in Italy, organized by RCS sport and media company in collaboration with the Consulate General of Italy in Los Angeles and the Italian Trade Commission.
