The Ride

Some cyclists will ride casually. Others will race. The beauty of the 2015 Prospera Granfondo Axel Merckx Okanagan (PGAMO) is that everyone will finish in Penticton with a smile on his/her face. All ride categories start at 7 a.m. from Penticton’s Gyro Park (also the site of the Finish Area).Ride Categories
