The BGY Airport Granfondo is announced on May 5th, 2024 in Bergamo, and all bike lovers should mark this spot in their calendar. The Italian bike mass-event organized by GMS alongside SACBO, the company managing Milan Bergamo airport (whose international acronym is “BGY”), aims at further growth afterthe 2023 edition featuring two thousands participants.

All tracks meander across the city and the province of Bergamo, including some of the most famous spot in cycling history, starting from the Selvino ascent. Furthermore, it is possible to choose which route to tackle during the race, with no obligation in doing that during the registration process.
