Joanne Elves for #RockiesExploring
Oh, oh, a few pounds crept on during the festive season of 2019. Not to worry. Today is the day you plan your route to better health and fitness. But the Biggest Loser system of dropping weight and regaining fitness is not the way to go. Slow and steady builds a better body. So, what to do? Sign up for a ride or a run in the fall to dangle that carrot and set that goal. What’s our suggestion? The Kootenay Gran Fondo.
The ride is in September giving you plenty of time to train. It starts and finishes at the St. Eugene Golf Resort & Casino a short distance from Cranbrook, B.C. where there’s plenty of space for riders to park in the freshly harvested fields next to the festival tent. In the early dawn light, water bottles are topped up, race numbers are secured to the bikes and hundreds of pairs of padded bike shorts are put on before heading to the festival tent for the continental breakfast. With bellies full of carbs and protein, the riders head for the start line in front of the old brick missionary-turned hotel.
