Sustainability

GFNJ was born out of a belief that our future depends on building sustainable communities. Our goal in the event is to promote cycling as a major part of daily life and improve how communities interact with the natural world. 

Over 90% of the “waste” generated from the event diverted from landfills to recycling, reuse, or composting. We are the first cycling event in the world to achieve the Gold Standard for Sustainability from the Council for Responsible Sport. 


To achieve our vision for we set to make GFNJ an important part of the cultural & economic life of our community. GFNJ has raised over $1,250,000 to date in support of charities which share GFNJ's vision. 

By being part of the GFNJ family you are helping us preserve Morristown's natural beauty, develop the future of our community, make New Jersey safer for cyclists and enable the next generation of American athletes. 

Gran Fondo New Jersey is the largest single sponsor of New Jersey Bike and Walk Coalition, a major sponsor of the New Jersey Interscholastic Mountain Biking Association (NICA), an important organization in promoting women cycling around Morris County and a strong advocate of improving road conditions in and around Morristown.
