Penticton in the Okanagan Valley in the Southern Interior of British Columbia, Canada will be getting it's Granfondo this year!

Due to Coronavirus, this year’s edition moves from the second weekend of July (originally scheduled for July 11, 2021) to the third weekend in September. Event co-founder Axel Merckx said the decision to move dates was not an easy one, and only occurred after considerable consultation with event partners and relevant authorities.

“We are developing a flexible approach that will allow us to respond to any changes in public health orders and provide the best Fondo experience possible,” said Merckx.

In years past, more than 2,500 riders participated.

General registration for the Sept. 19 event opens this Thursday at 9 a.m.

New entries will be capped at 400, as participants entries are rolled-over from the cancelled event last September 2021.

Participants can choose from three distances, the Cortofondo (~30 km – 55 km), the Mediofondo (~80 km – 95 km) and the Granfondo (~130 km – 170 km) – with all three routes starting and finishing in Penticton.

“Despite the date change, we expect a good deal of demand as new road bike purchases have been at an all-time high due to the pandemic, and many of our new and long-time participants have been eager to jump on the saddle again,” says Merckx.

This is great news for Penticton it's the first festival / event to confirm that it's taking place in 2021.
