Granfondo

My sister-in-law just emailed to say that there’s an exciting event going on in the Okanagan this Sunday – the Granfondo. I had no idea what a Granfondo was until I googled it. For those of you who might not know either, it’s a European style bike race. There are several events, the Granfondo is 160 km, the Mediofondo is 92 km and there’s an even shorter one introduced this year called the Cortofondo, a mere 55 km. Two thousand cyclists will participate including some legends, beginning at 7 am. The route runs through beautiful South Okanagan Wine country and right by Sedona Heights in Summerland! Todd and family will be out there cheering on the riders. The event also features great food and family fun and, of course, a Granfondo Wine Tasting, in conjunction with the Okanagan Wine Festival Society. Just make sure you have a designated cyclist on hand to double you home.
