GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — This year’s MSU Gran Fondo, scheduled for June 27, has been canceled.

“We are setting our sights on MSU Gran Fondo 8, June 26, 2021, when we can reunite and ride together through West Michigan in support of life-saving skin cancer research,” said Aron Sousa, MD, interim dean, MSU College of Human Medicine, which sponsors the event.

Previous Gran Fondo events have been held in downtown Grand Rapids.

Cyclists who were already registered can get a refund, apply the fee to the 2021 event, or assign the fee as a donation to either MSU skin cancer research or the MSU COVID-19 Student Emergency Fund.
