Gran Fondo cancelled for 2020
After thoughtful and deliberate consideration, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the seventh annual Kootenay Rockies Gran Fondo.
As you are aware, in order to hold a public event involving more than 50 participants in British Columbia we will need to reach Phase 4 of the BC Government’s Restart Plan which requires; a vaccination, community immunity, or broad successful treatments – none of which seem likely to occur in the next several months.
Given this announcement 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.
All rider registrations will be deferred to the September 11, 2021 event. No action is required on your part. Once your registration has been transferred to next year’s event you will receive a confirmation e-mail for your records.
All merchandise payments made for this year’s event will be transferred to the 2021 event as well.
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 11, 2021.
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 year’s 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.
