The Okanagan Granfondo hosts up to 3,000 cyclists of all skill levels in a ride that takes them on a heart-thumping journey through the picturesque southern Okanagan region.

Cyclists have the option of challenging themselves with the full Granfondo (160 km), the Velocefondo (126 km), the Mediofondo (92 km), or the Cortofondo (55 km). All categories feature our premier on-course support.
