All the espresso you want on a circuit that takes in the best of two exceptional cycling regions.
If there is one event that will make you want to relocate to Italy, it is the Gran Fondo Segafredo. Taking in both the Colli Asolani and the Prosecco Hills, the 105 km circuit will go by so many spectacular views of the Veneto region that you might have a problem staying on the road!
Although there are no seriously long ascents to conquer, the rolling vineyard landscape adds up to 1400 m of total climbing for the day.
The start line for the event is in the village of Posagno, the birthplace of the famous sculptor Canova. After a short downhill, the route crosses the Piave river and enters the Prosecco region south of Valdobbiadene. The first significant uphill of the day is into the town of Combai, nestled on the hillside of the Monte Cesen and affording great views of the Prosecco valley.
Passing back over the Piave, the route enters the Colli Asolani area once again and reaches the next challenge of the day, the Forcella Mostaccin, a 3.5 km ascent to the ridge of the Asolani hills. Continuing westward to the edge of Bassano del Grappa, the route then starts the last uphill of the day in the shadow of the Monte Grappa, before returning to Possagno and a last still kick up to the impressive Canova Temple.
