GFNY Puerto Rico starts from the El Conquistador Resort. The race will go on fast and mostly flat roads, and some short, slight climbs through the eastern coastal towns of Fajardo, Ceiba, Naguabo and Humacao.
In Humacao, you turn inland to take on the second half of the loop. This section will travel through lush, remote, tranquil roads, but the beautiful surroundings also come with a price: be ready for five steep, punchy climbs (11.9% max) and fast, technical descents that will make your legs burn.
Long route will do the loop a second time. The medium route riders complete the loop once.
At the end of the loop, turn left and return back on the same road you started. A mostly-flat and fast final miles to get back to El Conquistador, a festive finish line and the biggest post-race party you’ve ever seen. Be ready for music, food, dancing.
Stay an extra night and join us for sunset party and a cool-down group ride on Monday morning with your GFNY Family to cap off an amazing race week.
Long route – 92 miles / 6013 ft +
Medium route – 54 miles / 3285 ft+
