2022 Swamdo – Swami’s Gran Fondo

Event Details

Registration is required.  Read details below.  REGISTER HERE!


The Swami’s Gran Fondo is now a fall fixture in North County.  We offer three challenging and scenic routes with fully supported rest stops.

Our Full Century route has the unforgettable, leg-busting loop through De Luz. You’ll have the choice of prolonging your punishment with another run up Olive Hill and a loop around Sleeping Indian for 100+ miles. Or call it good once you hit the Bonsall rest stop and head back for a solid total around 94 miles. Both the Medio and the Full Century routes feature beautiful Couser Canyon. The Piccolo route takes your through Sleeping Indian. All rides depart from Rouleur Brewing in Carlsbad.

Perhaps more important than the ride itself is the party that follows. Join us from 12:30 – 3:30 PM for a catered party along with beer and other less popular beverages. The party is included in the registration and definitely a highlight of the event. Participants will receive a commemorative pint glass.

Courtesy of Ting, registration is free for current Swami’s members this year! (Must register by midnight on 11/6).  Please remember to cancel if your plans change.

Your ride length choice need not be made now – prices are the same for all events. The routes overlap, so depending on how you are feeling at the primary Bonsall rest stop, you can head back early to make the most of the party or choose to continue your ride.
