Gran Fondo Moab (Road Bicycle Event)

May 6

One of Utah’s top Gran Fondo style cycling events, Gran Fondo Moab, returns in 2023 on May 6th. Operations of the event will be taken over by TransRockies Race Series, who has operated the Moab Rocks mountain bike stage race since 2013. Gran Fondo Moab takes riders up and over the La-Sal Mountain Loop Road. Starting at Lion’s Park and finishing in Old City Park in Moab, the mountainous route features 5,500 feet of climbing over 60 miles in the Manti-La Sal National Forest. The event has been operated since 2010 by Poison Spider Bicycles. “We wanted to showcase this spectacular mountain ride that we have here, while also emulating the old Italian tradition of Gran Fondo style cycling events,” said, Scott Newton, Poison Spider owner and founder of Gran Fondo Moab. “As we looked for opportunities to keep the event thriving, we turned to our friends at TransRockies as the perfect group to carry the event into the future with the same spirit that we started it.”
