You might not be able to bring out your blingy gold Martone Cycling Company bike with a Louboutin-red chain designed by Marc Jacobs’s ex Lorenzo Martone, but competitive biking does get you fit and ready for fashionable, less-is-more summer outfits. So get your wheels ready and race in the Campagnola Gran Fondo, which brings Italy’s hard-core cycling obsession to New York. Over 7,000 cyclists tackle a 105-mile course that goes from New York to Bear Mountain … and back! Get ready to get up early and burn those calories.
Start at the George Washington Bridge, 6:30am-5:30pm, $280 per person including registration insurance.
