Gran Fonduro Postponed for 2016

It looks like the ambitious Gran Fonduro planned for the Borders has been cancelled for this year. According to the event website, they hope to run the event in 2017. Here's the announcement in full from the organisers, Hillside Outside Ltd.

Due to the complexity of route arrangements, including landowner permissions and a few other production difficulties, we have very reluctantly made the decision to postpone Gran Fonduro until 2017.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caued, but we want to make this event a fantastic experience for everyone, so we’re going to take a little bit longer to make sure it’s absolutely right. As soon as we have the date for next year we will update you.

Like a lot of the best things, it will be worth the wait. More news when we have it and have a great summer of riding in the meantime!
