The weather was superb on Sunday. Our first Gran Fondo was sold out with 200 riders enjoying the spectacular riding that the Qu'Appelle valley has to offer. When we put the route together we believed that the three main climbs would be the challenge, but many of our riders noted the rollers that dotted the course. One rider said there were "72 hills!". I like to think that the photo to the right says so much about Saskatchewan cyclists, catching a draft from a tractor!.
Let's hope the weather is as good for the 2017 ride.
