2017 Prospera Valley Gran Fondo

Prospera Valley Gran Fondo

Fort Langley, BC, Canada

Choose YOUR Century!

The Prospera Valley GranFondo has routes of (160km), Medio Fondo (100km), and Presto Fondo (50km). Take part in the largest mass-participation cycling event in the Fraser Valley of BC!  

The Fraser Valley, long known as the road cycling mecca of British Columbia is once again the location for what will become one of Canada’s premier cycling events. 

The 160km (100miles) route takes cyclists from Fort Langley south through Langley’s country roads, along Zero Avenue, through the community of Arnold, along the Sumas Prairie, up and over Sumas Mountain in Abbotsford and back to Fort Langley along the Matsqui flats and through Glen Valley along the Fraser River. Participants will climb and descend; they will open up the throttle along the flats (where they may battle some wind), and they will take it easy on occasion to marvel at the beauty of the route. The GranFondo is for cyclists of all ages.

This 100km route may be shorter than its big brother, but it is just as good!  Cyclists depart Fort Langley and head south along Langley’s country roads, along Zero Avenue and begin their journey back to Fort Langley through the community of Bradner and along the mighty Fraser River and through Glen Valley. The MedioFondo is a ride designed to inspire and challenge novice cyclists of all ages.

This 50km route is a great introduction to participating in a mass cycling event. Cyclists depart Fort Langley and head south along Langley’s country roads. The course is predominantly flat with just enough hills to challenge you through the scenic route of Langley. Support vehicles guide you along the way to make your ride safe and enjoyable. The PrestoFondo is designed to inspire and challenge novice cyclists of all ages.

Team Event

Race teams, club teams, and corporate teams will use the Prospera Valley GranFondo as a test of their group’s skill and esprit de corps. The wonder of cycling is that for such an individual effort it is the social and team components of the sport that brings people closer.

Our team event is simple and inspired by traditional team time trials. It will be the time of the fifth rider on the team that counts as the team’s time. This means that once the team rolls through the start corral that it is in everyone’s best interest to work together for the duration of the ride. We will be offering three team categories – female, male and co-ed. Co-ed teams must include the finish times of two male and two female participants.
