As part of the Gran Fondo NJ weekend Gran Fondo NJ holds a fun-filled Kid Fondo the day before the event. This year’s Kid Fondo will be held on September 8th 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM.  It is free, but it would be great if you could make a voluntary donation to the New Jersey Bike and Walk Coalition who do a lot of great work to make cycling safer for kids. You can register by clicking on the button below.


Kid Fondo is targeted for kids from 5 through 12 and provides training on basic cycling skills, a warm-up session, bike decorating and a fun filled “Circuit-ride” around the property of the Vail Mansion. Each participant gets a finishers medal (recycled from previous years Gran Fondos) and a trunk full of great memories. The event wraps up with mac and cheese, pizza and drinks for the kids.
