About Bluewater International Granfondo
The exciting 4th Annual Bluewater International Granfondo on Sunday, August 4, 2019 welcomes cyclists to the Lambton County’s Bluewaterland, starting and finishing in The City of Sarnia’s beautiful Mike Weir Park.
Bluewater International Granfondo is part personal challenge and part serious competition with riders having four routes to choose from. The event will not be timed from start to finish as in traditional racing formats but instead will have timed sections. Each route will have its own start time specifically designed to avoid mass start anxiety and allow riders of all routes to be able to finish within a reasonable time of each other.
This structure allows for the focus to be about enjoyment while allowing your competitive juices to flow during the timed sections. It also allows for regrouping with friends in between the timed sections or riding your own comfortable pace.
