OFFICIAL GIRO BIG START LEGACY EVENT RETURNS TO NORTHERN IRELAND

28/01/2016
OFFICIAL GIRO BIG START LEGACY EVENT RETURNS TO NORTHERN IRELAND
SUNDAY 5 JUNE 2016 WILL SEE THE SECOND EDITION OF THE GRAN FONDO GIRO D’ITALIA NORTHERN IRELAND




Like 2015, the 2016 event will be a special experience with fully policed closed roads, two challenging routes and post ride party with wood fired oven pizzas, pasta dishes and Italian beer and wine.


On Saturday and Sunday (4/5 June) at Titanic Belfast there will be activities for families and friends and photo opportunities with the Giro d’Italia Trophy.



What participants said about the 2015 Gran Fondo NI


“To have the opportunity to tour the countryside on closed roads was an opportunity not to be missed and it didn’t disappoint.” Kevin

“It’s far from being the first such ride I’ve taken part in, but I haven’t enjoyed any of the other mass cycles as much as this one.” Tony

“Well done on a great Gran Fondo in Belfast. All in all, a great challenge and I look forward to next year.” Peter

“There were so many nice touches in so many different aspects of the day and all staff at all levels were invariably friendly, supportive and cheerful.” Gail

“It was an amazing event - impeccably well organised. The atmosphere was incredible! Thanks for organising this incredible event.” Pete

“Well done to all involved - the organisation was first class and with the marshalling, food and drinks stations and the road closures we all felt like “proper” cyclists for a day!” Adrian
