What Riders Are Saying

“At first I didn’t care about the timed climbs, but it was neat seeing how I did and the overall finish. Great ride. Liked the mass start and early escort. Good support. Nice rest stops. Great course. I’ll be back!”

“Challenging ride with some challenging hills. Excellent preparation of entire weekend. Post party at the art museum was good.”

“My first time riding the DGF and will be returning next year. I appreciated the friendly atmosphere of the ride and participants. Thanks!”

“This was my first experience that truly tested my skills on hills…it was tough but plan to return, and better my time. Great event!!!”

“Cyclist from flat side of EHT, NJ. The route and hills and the events was fantastic. I thank you for the volunteers and great service. I’ll be joining this event 2017.”

“Thanks you for all the great volunteers!!!! All together in am very satisfied with the weekend event. See you all next year!”

“Very enjoyable. I am a local so being able to ride thru Hagley and Winterthur is awesome. Now you have to get Mt. Cuba back! There are a couple of drivable estates – one between Barley Mill and RT 82 another between Center Mill and Snuff Mill or Oberod – would the owners allow the one time tour- Thanks again”

“Riding the Delaware Grand Fondo makes me proud to be a native Delawarean. The scenery and challenging nature of the terrain is outstanding. I participate both for the fun of testing my climbing abilities on the timed hills and for the relaxation and beauty of a day out on Delaware’s best back roads.”

“I loved this Fondo! A great time, great people and an absolute beautiful and challenging ride. I’ll see you next year!”
