El Cid Vacations Club members who want to take part in one of the world’s most famous cycling events need look no further than the Gran Fondo. This year’s installment of the race will take competitors through the entire terrain of Cozumel, from flat, scenic beaches and roadways up into more challenging areas that are known for high winds. El Cid Vacations Club reminds all that November 22, 2015 is the official date for one of the most breathtaking cycling competitions in the world.

Touring the entire circumference of Cozumel during the race, participants in the Gran Fondo will view dazzling scenery while they pump their way along the Mayan pathways that were trod by those ancient people some 3,000 years ago. El Cid Vacations Club members who take part in the Gran Fondo will enjoy fully closed roads throughout the entire race course, a massive 2-day expo, finisher medals, packed goodie bags, precise timing from start to finish, Mexican-style after-race meals and a full slate of local entertainment.

Participants come back to the Fondo year after year because of the exquisite race route, fellow cyclists’ enthusiasm, well stocked aid stations and fantastic race support. El Cid Vacations Club points out that motorcycle marshals and hundreds of race volunteers protect the entire course and the cyclists themselves. There is also plenty of mechanical support for the cyclists who need it along the way. El Cid Vacations Club members who have taken part in the Gran Fondo note that participants get all sorts of great gifts and prizes, like cycling jerseys, commemorative medals, and professional start-to-finish medical and technical support.

El Cid Vacations Club members who want to ride in the Gran Fondo to practice their drafting skills will have their work cut out for them. The winds during the race can be as high as 25 mph and can be a really unique force to handle. Riders tend to meet the wind as a group, using their drafting ability to help each other through the gustiest portions of the course. El Cid Vacations Club wants everyone to enjoy the Gran Fondo in 2015 and take this incredible opportunity to see Cozumel the way the Mayan conquerors did three millennia ago.

There is no better way for El Cid Vacation Club members to get a taste of what Cozumel adventure is all about. The Gran Fondo is one of the area’s most invigorating sports challenges.
