This weekend’s Kootenay Rockies Gran Fondo has been postponed to next year due to the current wildfire situation in our region.
Tuesday’s announcement comes after organizers revealed this year’s event was their first sell out will 500 cyclists registered.
However, they say competitors health and safety was their number one priority when making the decision.
Not only are there several Evacuation Alerts and Orders in place across the East Kootenay, but Smoky Sky bulletins remain in place for much of the BC Interior – including our region.
Competitors will have their registration fee deferred to the rescheduled September, 8th 2018 race.
