  • The top fundraiser (who raises at least $10,000) will win a Dream Bike from Specialized and SRAM

In its fourth year, Higher Gear’s Gran Fondo Hundo is a 62-mile ride from Wilmette to Kenosha. You will join 100 riders on a scenic route from the Chicago suburbs up to historic Simmons Field. At the finish line, you’ll enjoy a hot shower and a post-ride celebration. The celebration includes a barbecue dinner and a Kenosha Kingfish baseball game. Following the game, you and your bike will have transportation back to Wilmette.

Join our passionate community of riders, volunteers, families and friends in the Chicago area. Fundraise to helping students, healthcare workers and entrepreneurs in the field.
