Popular cycling event returns to Top End

The Sunbuild Top End Gran Fondo turns 10 this year, and time is running out for cyclists to sign up.

Event Manager Richard Welsh said it was exciting to celebrate the 10th edition of the NT’s largest cycling event this year.

“Each edition has grown in size and, with the popularity of cycling being bolstered during COVID-19, we’re expecting our biggest turnout yet,” he said.

The Gran Fondo, scheduled for 25 July 2021, is the Territory’s largest cycling event, and you can sign up for a range of distances. They include:

– The full 145km Sunbuild Top End Gran Fondo
– The 109km Heath Motor Group Tonne
– The 60km Darwin Family Law Half Fondo
– The 25km Fleet Choice NT Fondo
– The three kilometre Royal Flying Doctor Service Mini Fondo

All routes start from the Darwin Waterfront, with longer options extending past Palmerston, into Berry Springs and returning to Darwin.

The event has grown in popularity each year to attract not only Top Enders, but also people across the Territory and interstate.
This event is supported by the Northern Territory Government through Northern Territory Major Events Company.
