Thousand Islands Gran Fondo
The 100 mile cycling event will start and finish from downtown Kingston, out of the historic Woolen Mill at 4 Cataraqui St., situated along the Cataraqui River, where it meets Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River. Under a police escort through the downtown section of Kingston, cyclists will head east up Fort Henry Hill past the Kingston Canadian Forces Base. Here the police escort will end and cyclists will travel east along Hwy 2 beside the St. Lawrence River into Gananoque where they will enter the newly paved trails of the beautiful Thousand Islands Parkway.
The ride takes you all the way through the parkway where it finishes at the outskirts of Brockville. Riders will cross over a bridge at the 401 onto beautiful secondary country roads all the way back into Gananoque. Cyclists will continue along Hwy 2 back into Kingston and the Woolen Mill finish area. Cyclists will be greeted by family and friends with great food and refreshments.
Riders will be supported by a lead vehicle, course markings, and a follow vehicle for mechanical help and rider assistance.
