The avid followers may have already discovered it: on the detail pages of the most popular gran fondos we now also show the routes. Our users have asked for this several times. We're doing this together with the popular route platform Komoot. Read how it works below. And we also have a great give away!
We focus primarily on the most popular gran fondos and stage races. At the moment we have about 30 events with an itinerary. These are stored in a collection. You can find them all here. Our intention is to expand that number quickly.
Follow us on Komoot and you will always be informed of new routes we add.
All routes can be found on the event detail page. Take a look at the Dolomites Marathon, for example. The overview map shows all three distances, which you can then view in detail. Click on it and you will enter the collection. For this you need a Komoot account. If you don't have one yet, you can create one for free.
It's user-friendly and self-explanatory. When you click on a route you will see four blocks of information
You can zoom in on the altitude profile. This is very useful if, for example, you want to view a particular climb in detail. To do this, click your mouse, hold it down and drag it to the right. As soon as you let go, this section will be highlighted and you will see more details (see image below).

You will always find the route of the next edition. Not every granfondo follows the same route every year. Some even present a different one every year. Others change occasionally, such as the Alpenbrevet in 2020 and the Marmotte in 2021. We may add old routes at a later date, but that is not a priority for the time being.
If you are going to ride a gran fondo, you may want to ride training routes in advance. Komoot has an immense amount of routes at your disposal. Go to Discover in the menu bar and enter your location. You will always get a list of interesting tours in the area. Super easy.
Do you prefer to make your own route? That's also possible. You can use Route planner to make the trip you want to take yourself.
The weather forecast shows the forecast for the whole region. Premium subscribers receive a detailed weather forecast, which shows you exactly the weather conditions you can expect on each part of the route a few days in advance. Very important information for the choice of clothing, especially in the high mountains. If you ride gran fondos often, it is definitely worth considering.
Komoot Highlights allows you to add recommendations from other Komoot users to your route with just one click, so you won't miss a thing.
If you have a route of a gran fondo you have ridden, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. If the route is still up to date, we will post it.
