Granfondo Garneau-Québecor

August 12 2018
Trois-Rivières, Quebec, Canada

The Granfondo Garneau-Quebecor is an annual event organized by Louis Garneau Sports for the past 9 years. The participants must ride a 118 km between Trois-Rivières and St -Augustin-de-Desmaures. Since 2017, the organization is offering a new 22-kilometer course, the Minifondo, around St-Augustin-de-Desmaures.

This event is intended to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyle habits while raising funds for the Little Brothers organization. The event is open to both amateur cyclists and seasoned athletes alike. Last year, the Granfondo attracted over 2,000 cyclists.

The 10th edition will take place on Sunday August 12, 2018. Riders will take the start at the Alphonse-Desjardins sports center in Trois-Rivières starting 9:00 am and will arrive at the Louis Garneau Sports factory in Saint -Augustin-de-Desmaures in the afternoon. Several pelotons will be formed according to riders’ average speeds.

Participants of the Minifondo will set off from St-Augustin-de-Desmaures at 8:30 am. They will then take a break before heading back to the Louis Garneau Sports factory via St-Augustin-de-Desmaures’ 3e Rang. They will be back just in time to enjoy a good meal and watch the Granfondo riders cross the finish line.

Since its creation in 2009 by Louis Garneau, the Granfondo has been very involved in the community to support the Little Brothers organization. In eight years, over $460,000 have been donated to this organization.
