2021 Kootenay Rockies Gran Fondo cancelled

Refunds will be mailed

After thoughtful and deliberate consideration, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the seventh annual Kootenay Rockies Gran Fondo scheduled for Sept 11.

As you are aware, public events in British Columbia have been severely restricted in terms of numbers of participants allowed. We don’t anticipate that these restrictions will be lifted or reduced sufficiently and in time to allow an event of our size to proceed.

Given this situation, and in the interest of the health and safety of our riders and volunteers, we have no alternative but to cancel this year’s event. We looked at many different options and scenarios, but ultimately, we felt we could not provide you with the safe world class event we strive for every year.

For ease of accounting and to be transparent, all rider registrations will be refunded by cheque via Canada Post. No action is required on your part unless your mailing address has changed since you registered for the event. If this is the case, please send an email to [email protected] advising us of your new address.

For riders who registered using complimentary coupon codes, you will receive an email with a new coupon code for the 2022 event. All merchandise orders will also be refunded in conjunction with the registration refund. To make it simple to re-register for 2022 we will have the online registration open for 2022 by the time you receive your refund cheque.

Like you, we are incredibly disappointed with this outcome, but your health and safety are always our primary concern.  We look forward to hosting you once again in the spectacular Kootenay Rockies on Saturday September 10, 2022.

For our volunteers and sponsors, thank you for always being there for this great event. We look forward to working with all of you again next year.

All information for next years event will be posted on our web site and we are considering some exciting changes. Be sure to follow us at www.krgf.ca and keep on riding.
