Who says Florida is flat! The Central Florida Gran Fondo race starts and ends at PHCC, centered in the rolling orange groves of PASCO county. The event starts and finishes on College Hill and follows, in part, the proposed Olympic road race course that was part of Tampas bid to host the Summer Olympic Games. It travels along rural rolling hills, past horse farms and crystal clear springs. Briefly going through Withlacoochee State Forest and the hills surrounding Brooksville, Florida. At the 87 miles mark you will enter a piece of US cycling history along Darby road, once home to the famous Darby Road Race that has seen the likes of Tour De France winner Lauren Figon.
