Creston-Kootenay Lake Gran Fondo.
Choose from one of three routes.
We are looking at moving the start of the ride so that the start and finish are flat. This will likely lengthen the Piccolo and Medio by about 2-5k. The distances below are for the ride of 2022.
We are also looking at adding a Piccolo distance ride of about 50km that has an off-road(gravel) component. If we can arrange the new start this ride is essentially flat. This is a work in progress and we don't know if we can do this quite yet. If it happens then riders registered in the Piccolo can change with no cost to them.
Gran Fondo - 151.7km ride with stunning views of Kootenay Lake, snow capped mountains, bucolic farm country and a long hill climb, all of which will take your breath away!
Medio Fondo- 98.6 km ride with stunning views of Kootenay Lake and snow capped mountains.
Piccolo Fondo - 55.5km ride with stunning views of Kootenay Lake and snow capped mountains.
Early Bird - until May 31
