Kootenay Rockies Gran Fondo
Sep 8, 2017 - Sep 9, 2017
The Kootenay Rockies Gran Fondo is a non profit cycling event which provides cyclists an opportunity to participate in a world-class Fondo, challenging themselves to ride a long distance with other cyclists. Many ride the event like a race, while others simply ride for the personal challenge and the camaraderie with friends and family. Whatever your reason, you will enjoy magnificent Rocky Mountain scenery along the way.
The event will raise funds for local charities such as the Kimberley Northstar Rails to Trails Society and other community projects.
