Gran Fondo - 4 August 2023

A reminder about the Gran Fondo and local Road Closures

The following is an extract from the Gran Fondo website:

As you will be aware from our previous communications, Perth and Kinross is one of the Host Regions for the 2023 UCI Cycling World Championships happening across Scotland this summer and will be staging the Gran and Medio Fondo events on Friday 4th August.

We would like to thank all residents and businesses for your engagement over the last couple of months, as we have spoken to many of you at our community engagement sessions across the route, through our dedicated inbox and on social media channels. While we understand there is some concern regarding the associated road closures, we have been delighted to hear there is excitement and support to welcome the event to the area.

During the planning phase, we have been working hard to design routes which will maximise the experience for cyclists and visitors, and showcase Perth & Kinross on the global stage, while minimising the impact on local communities.

Enclosed is a copy of the road closure map for the Gran Fondo and Medio Fondo events, which details the specific roads which will be closed with timings. As we are very close to the event now, we would like to remind you to plan around the road closures on Friday 4th August as the routes marked will be closed to all vehicle traffic during the allotted times. Diversion routes will be clearly marked and managed on the event day.
