Bluewater Granfondo on the cycling map

Sarnia’s Bluewater International Granfondo has been named one of the top Granfondo cycling events in Canada.

In only its second year, Bluewater cracked number 11 on the list generated by the cycling website granfondoguide.com.

A granfondo, which loosely translates from Italian as “a big ride,” is mass participation cycling that began in Europe and has lately been growing in popularity in North America.

Scheduled for Aug. 6, this year’s event will allow participants to select one of three routes in Lambton County. The Bluewater Granfondo isn’t a race but it does include timed sections.

Organizers hosted around 500 cyclists at last year’s granfondo, which raised $30,000 for St. Joseph’s Hospice and Palliative care at Bluewater Health.
