Clifton Forge, VA

Agony in the Alleghanies 2024 will be on June 29th! 

Agony in the Alleghanies is a destination Gran Fondo cycling event you won't want to miss!  Come to Virginia's scenic Alleghany Highlands region for the Agony in the Alleghanies Gran Fondo event. 

Easily accessible from Interstate 64, and four hours' drive from both Washington, DC and Charlotte, the Alleghany Highlands' majestic peaks and picturesque valleys might be mistaken for a region of France or Germany. With electronic chip timing, a King of the Mountains competition, and a mass start, all the elements of the classic European Gran Fondo will be here stateside and served up with southern hospitality.
