VIDEO: 430 Riders Tackled 4th Annual Kootenay Rockies Gran Fondo

Organized by the Cranbrook Sunrise Rotary Club as a non profit cycling event - a fun & friendly boutique Fondo in the Canadian  'Kootenay Rockies"

Most places can put on an “event” but the unique location and community spirit allowed for the event, in a “world class” setting with the full support of the hosting communities made for an unforgettable Bucket-List ride.

The paved Rails to Trails portion, with the bridge over the river, is to be experienced.

430 riders took part in this year's event with cyclists travelling from as far as Oxford, England and Texas to enjoy British Columbia's Kootenay Rockies.
