Cyprus Gran Fondo has been held for 10 years. The event will again be part of the UCI Gran Fondo World Series in a three days stage race in and around the city of Pafos on the west end of the island.

Almost 80% of the participants come from abroad to combine the cycling event with some tourism and training opportunities on the sunny island when it’s still pretty cold in the rest of Europe.

The Pafos international Airport is just 15 minutes away from the city and it connects the city with a number of different destinations in Europe, Middle East, Russia etc.
