Gran Fondo Agony in the Alleghanies

Clifton Forge, VA

No need to cross the Atlantic for an Old World cycling experience - come to Virginia's scenic Alleghany Highlands region for the Gran Fondo Agony in the Alleghanies.

Gran Fondo Agony in the Alleghanies is a destination cycling event you won't want to miss.

Easily accessible from Interstate 64, and four hours' drive from both Washington, DC and Charlotte, the Alleghany Highlands' majestic peaks and picturesque valleys might be mistaken for a region of France or Germany. With electronic chip timing, a King of the Mountains competition, and a mass start, all the elements of the classic European Gran Fondo will be here stateside and served up with southern hospitality. No Michelin guide required!
