Zappi Gran Fondo sportive

On Sunday 16th of September the first edition of the Zappi Gran Fondo will take place, starting and finishing at the Cherwell School on the Marston Ferry Road in Oxford. There will be two routes, one Medio Fondo at 110 km and the Gran Fondo which is 185 km.

To my knowledge this is the only sportive that actually starts in Oxford and promises to provide an exciting and fun time to all participants, with a challenging route into the Cotswolds for the Gran Fondo which includes a climb of Fish Hill.

There are lots of details on the webpage at so why not visit the site and sign up for what promises to be a great day out on the bike.
