About the Golden Ears Fondo
After putting on 2 other Gravel Fondos in BC we have been working hard over the last few years to find a gravel fondo route right here in the Lower Mainland. This was a very lofty goal due to all the pavement and expansion but we finally put together a course that is almost all gravel! Although it is almost all flat it is very scenic and is a great starter for anyone wanting to try a gravel fondo as this course could easily be accomplished with a road bike with slightly wider tires.
A Gravel Fondo which is a big ride primarily on gravel and dirt and the majority of the ride is on the dykes and trails through Port Coquitlam and Pitt Meadows.
On May 26th, 2018 the Golden Ears will showcase the amazing scenery of Golden Ears also providing a scenic and challenging ride. The Full fondo distance is roughly 90+ kms with a Medio Fondo of roughly 50kms. Start and finish are in Port Coquitlam. We plan to have a Beer Gardens as well as a wash up area near the finish line. We are trying to the FUN back into Fondo cycling events. Another of Tri 1 Events FUNDO Cycling event.
