The COVID pandemic is preventing us from hosting our annual Gran Fondo event this year. However, we have created a replacement event to give our cycling community a focus and goal to keep you healthy and active this summer. 

The challenge is to ride 1000km in the month of August. Every time you ride between August 1 and August 30 you can upload your ride data to our RidewithGPS Challenge board. Totals and rankings will be automatically calculated. Riders that reach 1000km in the month will receive a special Gold commemorative plaque. If you ride 750km in the month you will receive a silver commemorative plaque and if you reach 500km in the month you will receive a bronze commemorative plaque.

All riders that register will receive an exclusive event T-shirt to show off to your friends.

Each registration will include a $10 donation to the University Hospitals Kingston Foundation. You can also ride your km in August and have folks sponsor your ride to benefit the University Hospitals Kingston Foundation. 

Once you register for the challenge you will be sent a link to our ridewithgps challenge board that will automatically record all your rides between August 1 and August 30 when using the Ride with GPS app. Full instructions will be sent to each rider when they register.  

Overall prizes for the top three riders who complete 1000km the fastest.

You have a 1000 reasons to ride 1000km in August! Let’s see how many folks we can get riding 1000km in August!
