Be a Pro for a Day
Krabi and Nakhon Ratchasima, 2023

The cycling phenomenon that is Gran Fondo New York (GFNY) is coming to Thailand in 2023 giving amateur cyclists a chance to get a feel for what it is like to participate in a professional race.

After events in exotic locations around the globe, such as Florida, Mexico, Portugal and Uruguay, GFNY is coming to Thailand in 2023 with two locations, one in Krabi in February 2023 and one in Nakhon Ratchasima in October 2023. GFNY is a personal endurance challenge where you compete against others, the clock and yourself. The event is designed to give amateur cyclists a taste of what it is like to participate in a professional bike race, and it is expected to attract thousands of athletes and their families and friends.

Thus far, cyclists from more than 120 nations have participated in the races and GFNY Thailand 2023 is also expected to boost both local and international tourism during the two events. The format is the same at all GFNY events across the globe and the fastest participants are invited to compete at the Elite Racer corral at GFNY races as well as GFNY Championship held annually in New York City.

The race is organised into different categories and routes with both a long, competitive route and a more relaxed, recreational medium route. Cyclists can compete in both the individual races and in the GFNY Team Competition. In addition, participants can sign up for the Him & Her Competition where the focus is on helping each other across the finish line. Participants in the Him & Her category must finish within 30 seconds of each other in order to complete the race, meaning cooperation and assistance is key!
