Un­less you have some kind of awe­some setup go­ing for you, op­por­tu­ni­ties to hop on your bike and ride from A to B with­out wor­ry­ing about how you’ll get home are rare. Do­ing so with 3,000 other cy­clists or­ga­nized into pelo­tons is some­thing spe­cial. The Granfondo Garneau-québecor starts in Trois-rivières, Que., and fin­ishes in Saint-au­gustin-de-des­mau­res, where rid­ers who signed up for the new 20-km mini fondo op­tion will fin­ish, too. You’ll feel even bet­ter about your ac­com­plish­ment know­ing the ride sup­ports the Lit­tle Broth­ers or­ga­ni­za­tion, which pro­vides sup­port and com­pan­ion­ship to se­niors liv­ing be­low the poverty line.
