The 2016 Prospera Granfondo Axel Merckx Okanagan (PGAMO) is more than an epic ride through the heart of British Columbia’s wine country. It’s an entire weekend of cycling, family fun, and Okanagan sunshine.
Our Granfondo Weekend features the Kids’ Piccolofondo, Granfondo Women’s Night, Cycling Expo and much more.
The Axel Merckx Youth Development Foundation (AMYDF) is a not-for-profit initiative established in 2011 to help develop and steward the future of Canada’s young cyclists.
The AMYDF works with national and provincial organizations, such as the Canadian Cycling Association and Cycling BC, to enhance cycling skills through a variety of competitive events, development camps and coaching clinics. Through the Foundation’s efforts, Canada’s young cyclists receive unique access to some of North America’s top professional and amateur athletes, elite-level coaching, training events, and competitive races.
Join us for an amazing weekend of cycling and camaraderie.
