News and Information.
Gran Fondo NJ (GFNJ)
Gran Fondo means "big ride" or "big endurance" in Italian. GFNJ brings the excitement of a mass participation ride to New Jersey. The ride — not a race — will feature timed hill climbs with all the carnival-like culture of European tour mountain climbs.
The Seeing Eye is one of three nonprofit beneficiaries of this first-time event, Gran Fondo NJ.
Seeing Eye® President and CEO Jim Kutsch and his wife Ginger, both Seeing Eye® dog owners, are pairing with a sighted husband and wife team, Rob Steidlitz and Kirsten Hotchkiss, to ride tandem bikes in the event.
