Kamloops Indoor Gran Fondo

kamloops gran fondoOur regular readers know that Accent Inns is all about being a Bike Friendly Hotel Chain and supporting cycling events. We are also all about being different (in a good way). The Kamloops chapter of the MS Society of Canada have done an awesome job of creating an event that matches both areas of focus. The Kamloops Indoor GranFondo, February 8th.

The expected definition of a GranFondo is; gran fon·doˌa long-distance road cycling event in which a large number of cyclists ride a marked route. Why does that distance have to be either outdoors or on the road ?

Take on the most epic indoor cycling event of your life. Participants of the Kamloops Indoor GranFondo will ride stationary for up to 6 hours on bike trainers or spin bikes, while raising valuable funds for the MS Society of Canada. Not only is this a fun event and great way to stay in shape but let’s remember that it’s also about fundraising for an incredible worthy cause, the battle against MS in Canada.gran fondo
