GranFondo coming to Kamloops
Canadian Olympian cyclist Catharine Pendrel will participate in the inaugural Kamloops Indoor GranFondo at the Tournament Capital Centre.
The event — hosted by the city, the MS Society of Kamloops and PacificSport — will be held on Sunday, Feb. 10.
GranFondo loosely translated from Italian to English means 'big ride.'
Participants, however, can choose how long they want to ride — two hours, four hours, six hours or any open amount of time, with everyone finishing at 4 p.m.
The cost is $50 for adults and $25 for youth aged 13 to 18. Children ride for free.
All proceeds go to the MS Society of Kamloops.
Participants can bring their own bike and bike trainer (bicycle stand).
A limited number of bike trainers will be available for rent and several spin bikes will be available, free of charge.
Registration includes assistance with setup, a custom yoga mat, concierge service, aid stations and a ticket to the social after the event.
There is also an option to sign up for the Saturday-night carb-loading dinner.
