VCC Airport Fondo – 2023
September 9, 2023 @ 08:00 - 17:00
There are 3 Fondo options for you to choose from: the Cessna (94km), the 737 (166km) and the Jumbo Jet (247km).
Why “Airport” Fondo?
Because each route will “touch down” at some of the airports and landing strips in the greater Edmonton area.
Each Fondo route will start from the Strathcona Olympiette Centre. All groups will leave together.
The Cessna Fondo will pass by the Twin Island Airpark, Cooking Lake Airport and turn back to the Olympiette Centre after reaching the north end of the International Airport.
The 737 and Jumbo Jet groups will continue to the Parkland Airport, where the 737 riders will start riding back to the Olympiette Centre.
The Jumbo Jet Fondo group continues riding to make a complete clockwise loop around the city, taking in the Villeneuve Airport, the old Namao Airbase, the Josephburg Aerodrome and finally the Lechelt Field Airsrtip. At 247kms, this could be your biggest ride ever!

Is This For You?
Are you rubbing your hands together, saying, “Yes!! I’m in!”
Then here are the sign-up forms you need to use for each of these routes. We will also need ride leaders for the Cessna and 737 rides to ensure each of these groups safely make their way back to the Olympiette Centre:
