The Granfondo Garneau-Quebecor is an annual event organized by Garneau which consists of a 112 km bike ride between Trois-Rivières and Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures, on a magnificent course alongside the St. Lawrence River via Route 138 and the Chemin du Roy.
This event is intended to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyle habits while raising funds for the Little Brothers organization. The event is open to both amateur cyclists and seasoned athletes alike. Last year, the Granfondo attracted over 2,000 cyclists.
The 12th edition will take place on Sunday August 09, 2020. Riders will take the start at the Alphonse-Desjardins Sports Center in Trois-Rivières starting 9:00 am and will arrive at the Garneau factory in Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures in the afternoon. Several pelotons will be formed according to riders’ average speeds.
Since its creation in 2009 by Louis Garneau, the Granfondo has been very involved in the community to support the Little Brothers organization. In nine years, over $600,000 have been donated to this organization.
