About This Activity

Michael Chiarello’s Bottega Gran Fondo is the first of its kind destination cycling event where world-class culinary leaders share the stage with world-class cyclists and celebrities who all will be part of the peloton. (Limited to 300 cyclists).


Spend the weekend in Napa Valley.

SATURDAY APRIL 12th 1:00pm - 5:00pm in Yountville

Cooking Demos with the Celebrity Chefs and Pro Cyclists
Wine Tasting and Training with the Master Somms

An evening with Napa Valley Film Festival - special film screenings.

THE RIDE - Sunday April 13th

The Bottega Gran Fondo will boast the customary “mass start” – but what sets Chef’s ride apart (aside from some of the best roads in the world) is the team element. When registering, participants will have the choice to join a celebrity team of your choice – Chefs, Somms, Pro-Riders. This isn’t a race but a rally of like-minded riders. Choose the 75 or 40-mile course: both beautiful, challenging, and will know we shout - “we ride to eat!”

NOTE: Fee is same for both courses.
