Creston-Kootenay Lake Gran Fondo.
Choose from one of three routes.
The start of the 2023 ride will be from the WIlfred Jacob's Building located on the lands of the Lower Kootenay Band at the corner of Mallory Rd and Hwy 21.
Unfortunately we have not been able to obtain access to all parts of the off-road(gravel) course to be able to offer this as an additional option. We are hopeful that we can offer this is 2024. Instead we are looking at a shorter ride ~42.5km, 2/3 on pavement and 1/3 on gravel roads. Final decision on this will be end of May. Send us an email if this is of interest.
All the riders are a litte due to the change in starting location but they contain at least 100m less vertical rise without the hills at the very beginning and very end that were a bit problematic. As well the ride is now along roads that generally have very little traffic.
