The Kootenay Rockies Gran Fondo, a non-profit cycling event, has established itself as one of the most popular events on the Gran Fondo circuit.

John Woodsen, acclaimed North American Bucket List Rider, wrote, the Kootenay Rockies Gran Fondo is the Crown jewel of Canadian Fondos. Previous cyclists state the enthusiastic and friendly volunteers, fantastic scenery and exceptionally well-organized event is like no other cycling event.

Funds raised by the Fondo are distributed to non-profit groups in the community, including the three Rotary Clubs in Cranbrook and Kimberley, two local Lions Clubs to support local community service projects. Funds are also allocated to the Kimberley Volunteer Ski Patrol and the North Star Rails-to-Trails Society.

The event, organized by the Cranbrook Sunrise Rotary Club, could only happen with the fantastic support of our title sponsor, Apex Accounting and the many other local businesses in Cranbrook and Kimberley.
