The Granfondo Garneau-Québecor presented by Cascades is an annual 118 km bike ride between Trois-Rivières and St-Augustin-de-Desmaures, now in its 8th year of existence. The goal of the event is to promote physical activity and a healthy lifestyle while raising funds for the Little Brothers Foundation. The event is intended both for cycling enthusiasts and experienced athletes. Last year, the event attracted nearly 2,500 riders.
The 8th edition will take place on Sunday, August 14, 2016. Riders will leave the Alphonse-Desjardins Sports Center in Trois-Rivières at 9:00 am to arrive at the Louis Garneau Sports factory finish line in St-Augustin-de-Desmaures in the afternoon. Several groups will be formed according to cyclists’ average riding speeds.
Since its creation in 2009 by Louis Garneau, the Granfondo has been very much involved in the community to support the Little Brothers organization. In seven years, over $380,000 have been donated to the Foundation.
