Vermont Gran Fondo

Sue Hoxie
The Vermont Gran Fondo is the Green Mountain State’s own quadruple-gap century cycling event.
The Vermont Gran Fondo is our own version of Vermont’s famed LAMB* ride traversing four gaps (what Vermonters call mountain passes) with almost 11,000 feet of climbing back and forth across the spine of the Green Mountains. The Gran Fondo distance/ascent is 103 miles/10,600’. The Medio Fondo distance/ascent is 69 miles/7,300’ (Lincoln & Appalachian gaps). The Piccolo Fondo distance/ascent is 46 miles/3,100’ (Brandon & Middlebury gaps). *What’s a LAMB? The LAMB is an acronym for the Lincoln, Appalachian, Middlebury and Brandon Gaps. The Lincoln Gap features the steepest (24%) paved mile in the U.S.
