Creston-Kootenay Lake Gran Fondo.
What is a Gravelino? Well... Honestly, we just made it up because we had to call it something! There's some gravel, it's a shorter ride and thus gravelino and most importantly it rhymes with Vinnie Barbarino.
Gravelino - 42.7km ride through the farmlands of the Creston Valley and alongside the Kootenay River. This ride is generally flat with only very short sections of uphill. Approximately 30% of it is on gravel. The paved section is on less well used roads some of which have paved shoulders. Total vertical rise is about 150m which is as flat as it gets in the Creston Valley.
