Your choice of 3 scenic routes riding through Coconut Grove (25, 55 & 100 miles)
The Gran Fondo Giro d’Italia Miami starts in Coral Gables on Miracle Mile. The ride begins at 7:00 am, with a police escorted rollout on Miracle Mile, Ponce de Leon Ave, and beyond. The course loops around a traffic circle, so you will ride past the thousands of other participants as you head back up Ponce towards Miracle Mile.
At mile 11 the riders will have the option of turning on the Short (25 mile) course, and heading toward the finish line in Miami.
The long distance route (100 miles) will continue South and West into the vast agricultural areas of South Florida. Riders will pass fields of Palms and tropical flowers and will see wonderful fruit stands that sell local produce and fruit milkshakes. Cyclists will test their endurance, battling against wind, heat, and humidity.
Rest stops, especially on the long course, are situated at some of South Florida’s best known tourist locations: a beautiful historic estate, a beloved fruit stand, and a unique Nature preserve.
All routes end in Miami by going through Coconut Grove, a pedestrian and bike friendly community known for its lush trees, Biscayne Bay Water Front parks, shops and outdoor cafes.
