The Granfondo Garneau-Quebecor
The Granfondo Garneau-Quebecor is an annual event organized by Louis Garneau Sports since 2009. The participants must ride a 118 km between Trois-Rivières and St -Augustin-de-Desmaures. For 2017, the organization is offering a new 22-kilometer course, the Minifondo, around St-Augustin-de-Desmaures.
This event is intended to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyle habits while raising funds for the Little Brothers organization. The event is open to both amateur cyclists and seasoned athletes alike. Last year, the Granfondo attracted over 2,500 cyclists.
The 9th edition will take place on Sunday August 13, 2017. Riders will take the start at the Alphonse-Desjardins sports center in Trois-Rivières starting 9:00 am and will arrive at the Louis Garneau Sports factory in Saint -Augustin-de-Desmaures in the afternoon. Several pelotons will be formed according to riders’ average speeds.
Participants of the Minifondo will set off from St-Augustin-de-Desmaures at 8:30 am. They will then take a break before heading back to the Louis Garneau Sports factory via St-Augustin-de-Desmaures’ 3e Rang. They will be back just in time to enjoy a good meal and watch the Granfondo riders cross the finish line.
