Summerland proud to host Gran Fondo July 2011

Grand Fondo 2011 was fun to watch all those bikers ride along Summerland country roads.  Plenty of volunteers and the Chamber reports “business was great”

On a personal note, thought, it was hilarious to learn our house guest innocently tried to run the famous route, and found himself embarassed as he was cheered on alongside many of the bikers for sections of the Giants Head Run route.


The inaugural Granfondo Okanagan will host more than 2,500 cyclists of all skill levels in a ride that will take them on a heart-thumping journey through the picturesque southern Okanagan region.

You may not have heard of this, but it is a MAJOR event and some BIG TIME NAMES will be in attendance.  I know of one very well known celebrity already coming, and this is another opportunity for Summerland to position favorably as a high end recreation destination for off season NHL Families.  These guys love the small town feel and the recreation opportunities we live all summer long!
