Gran Fondo Gdynia Winter Edition on December 6!

On December 6 the cyclists will start in the second edition of the Gran Fondo Gdynia VR. The route of 90 kilometers recorded in HD quality with start and finish at the Kościuszko Square in Gdynia, Poland will be waiting for the athletes.

While the coronavirus pandemic is still bothering us and the weather is less and less conducive to cycling, it's high time to dust the bike trainer and search for new challenges in the virtual world again. One of them may be Gran Fondo Gdynia VR Winter Edition, a virtual competition, held on the route of the Gran Fondo Gdynia race.

Registration for the race lasts  on the SlotMarket.pl platform until November 30. There are two starter packages to choose from:

  • basic package: includes participation in the Gran Fondo Gdynia VR Winter Edition race - for PLN 40;
  • extended package: also includes a commemorative medal (the price includes shipping in the territory of Poland) - for PLN 70.

- The first edition of the Gran Fondo VR was great, so we have immediately announced the winter edition - says Łukasz Maleszewski, Gran Fondo Gdynia press spokesman. - Training alone is never enough. Athletes, including amateurs, need competition, they want to prove themselves in a direct duel with other people. This is what the Gran Fondo Gdynia VR Winter Edition race makes possible - he assures.

Not only the effort and emotions during virtual competition are real. The competitors are racing along the actual Gran Fondo Gdynia route. The entire course was specially recorded and transferred to the virtual world with attention to every detail.
