Calendars of granfondo events throughout Italy can be found on this gran fondo finder and on Matteo Dalzero's gran fondo site

Other events I've ridden include the GF dei Colli Euganei-10 Colli del Santo, the GF Melinda, and the Medio Fondo del Feltrino (my first ever fondo), which have all been discontinued. In 1998 an all-women granfondo, La Conca di Smeraldo, was run in Recoaro Terme. It received coverage in national cycling magazines and my friends and I were excited to see photos of ourselves. It was never held again, and a the idea of a women-only event (intended to attract women who wanted to get into gran fondo riding, but who might be intimidated by riding in a large event with predominantly male competitors) did not catch on.
