2024 Gran Fondo Texas Routes 
You're Going to Love The Routes

We plan to keep the same routes as 2023 unless  directed by TXDOT or local authorities to make some changes.   Gran Fondo Texas routes take riders through the scenic Sam Houston National Forest to the town of Richards. From Richards you'll ride past picturesque pastures with bluebonnets and grazing cattle on your way to the historic town of Anderson. The route to and from Anderson will have just enough elevation to help you get ready for endurance rides like the Texas MS 150. 

Our routes traverse roads shared with local vehicle traffic.  Please ride safely and courteously.  Major intersections will be managed by police officers.  Follow instructions from local police and event volunteers.

Note:  All routes are subject to change in the interest of safety of participants and volunteers.
