In 2012, Gran Fondo events began to take place in Israel. Already from the first event that took place in northern Israel (Gilboa-Hermon), Gran Fondo began basing itself as a "campfire" event attracting riders from all over the world.
The International Gran Fondo Arad - Dead Sea 2015 event will take place in one of the most unique places in the world: the Dead Sea, located in the Israeli Desert while paying attention to every detail in order to make the event extraordinary for the riders participating.
Professional teams have joined their forces in order to make this event into a long lasting tradition with many participants. This event takes place thanks to the collaboration with the Tamar Regional Council, Arad municipality, the Ministry of Tourism in Israel, the Ministry of Culture And Sport, Hapoel, Israel Cycling Federation and leading companies that support biking in Israel.
We invite you, the riders, to join this special event at the lowest place in the world and promise you an unforgettable experience along with a warm treatment and a good mood.
