ABOUT

The Zwift Fondo Series is back!

So what’s a fondo? It’s a giant group ride, with a ride-at-your-own-pace style that many newcomers are sure to love. Seasoned riders, get ready to put your legs to work. This mega-event brings together tons of Zwifters riding to make their best time and unlock THREE new exclusiv

CHOOSE YOUR FONDO CHALLENGE

The Zwift Fondo Series comes in three different endurance challenges: Gran, Medio, and Bambino. Choose your preferred ride based on your fitness or personal goals. This is not a race, but some will choose to ride it like one. Do what’s comfortable, and go at your own pace. If this is your first fondo or big group ride, welcome. We hope you have a blast!

Unlike other Zwift events, the A, B, and C groups of the Fondo don’t refer to rider strength or fitness. Instead, they correspond to route and distance options.

- Gran Fondo // A Group = The most challenging route.

- Medio Fondo // B Group = Find a good pace and push to the finish, or find a group with similar goals and work together to complete the distance.

- Bambino Fondo // C Group = Great for the time-crunched or first-time fondo rider.

IS THIS A RACE?

No, it's a personal challenge against the distance and the clock. Some Zwifters will ride the event like a race but there is no winner of a Zwift Fondo. It's all about doing your best and trying to finish the toughest routes in Watopia.

UNLOCK THE KITS

All Zwifters who finish either the Gran, Medio, or Bambino Fondo will unlock that month’s stylish Zwift Fondo Kit. Ride each fondo to collect ‘em all. These jerseys are rare, prized items—hop in the saddle and join us at the start line to see the finished look.

Note: You must ride the complete length of the Fondo to unlock that month’s jersey.
