Canada’s newest Gran Fondo, Now in its second season, the Creston-Kootenay Lake Gran Fondo nestled in the heart of beautiful British Columbia in the  Creston Valley.  It starts in Creston, alongside the rugged Skimmerhorn Mountain Range and 65-mile long Kootenay Lake on September 26.

The 95-mile route on lightly travel rural roads with stunning lake shore views filled with spectacular fall colors is sure to make riders ooh and ahh.  As it is harvest time in Creston, the opportunity to take home lots of locally grown produce will add to the experience. 

Offering a warmer climate in Canada’s banana belt – only 5-hours drive from Calgary – Kootenay Lake Gran Fondo plans to deliver a breathtaking and challenging end of season event for riders of all abilities.

Gran fondo-ing in British Columbia in September, it doesn't get any better!
