The Challenge of the Alpine Loop
Mountains Worthy of a Grand Tour, the Grit and Character of a Classic
Jeremiah Bishop’s favorite training route earned its nickname with glorious mountain top meadows, winding climbs and hillside farms reminiscent of the Austrian, German and Swiss settings where he has competed.
Now this magnificent scenery is the backdrop for the most challenging and adventurous Gran Fondo in the United States. The route begins in Harrisonburg, Virginia and covers 107 miles featuring over 11,000 feet of climbing and two dirt road mountain climbs – the toughest Gran Fondo in the States!
We welcome you to join in the adventure.
