The Kootenay Rockies – Grand Fondo is an organized, mass participation cycling event. The routes are well sign-posted and marshalled and riders are able to use aid stations positioned at intervals along the route to replenish their nutritional needs and drink supplies. Riders are provided with mechanical and medical support if needed.
If you are a cyclist, you can choose from one of these three options:
- Gran Fondo – 150 km: Challenge yourself to ride a long distance with fellow cyclists while being supported organizationally.
- Medio Fondo – 100km: Choose to ride the event like a race.
- Piccola Fondo – 52 km: Simply ride for a personal challenge and the camaraderie with friends and family.
This event is sponsored by the Western Financial Group. You can register online before September 5, 2013.
