Now in its fourth year, the annual Prospera Valley GranFondo (PVGF), which takes place on July 19 this year, is a celebration of community, sport and healthy living. Founded in 2012 by a group of cycling enthusiasts in Langley, it’s the biggest mass participation cycling event in the Fraser Valley, attracting over 1,200 cyclists of all ages and skill levels. Since it started, the PVGF has been enthusiastically embraced by the community and each year it gets bigger and better.
This year, the event will offer three options for riders including the 50km PrestoFondo, the 88km MedioFondo and the big ride, the 160km GranFondo. Giving back is an important part of the Prospera Valley GranFondo and during the first three years, the event has donated over $40,000 to Special Olympics BC. This year organizers are very excited to welcome a new community partner, Cycling BC, in support of the iRide School Program. The primary objectives of the iRide Program; to inspire children and youth to develop their bike riding skills, increase their fitness level and realize the benefits of a healthy, active lifestyle are all ones that are equally important to the organizers and sponsors of the Prospera Valley GranFondo.
