2017 Bike For Breath Gran Fondo Our 7th Annual Cycling Event to Support Lung Health

Join us for a spectacular autumn ride! This event is rapidly becoming one of the largest cycling events in Atlantic Canada with routes for all levels, all centered around the picturesque St. John River Valley. Starting in Fredericton, the capital of New Brunswick, participants will then be challenged to cross bridges and climb hills, all while enjoying our charming rural landscape and panoramic views overlooking the river. You quickly understand why we are called "The Picture Province."

Particularly interesting features of the Grand Fondo this year include:

  • Routes from the 10 km Piccolo Fondo to the 167 km Century Fondo;
  • Frequent nutrition and rest areas as well as mechanical assistance support vehicles / first aid;
  • Timed sections including speed and hill climbs
  • A great party after the race featuring delicious recovery food, awards for timed sections and fundraising prizes.
