Great Canadian cycling can be found from coast to coast – and in the middle of the nation. Saskatoon’s Prairie Gran Fondo may offer little climbing, but the sight of the never-ending Prairie sky and the vast landscape more than make up of for the lack of elevation changes. Besides, the wind will likely challenge you out on the road. New for this year, the organizers have added a family fun fondo that travels along the vehicle-free Meewasin Valley Trail, visiting cultural sites along the way.
