VCC Airport Fondo
August 27 @ 08:00 - 17:00
There are 3 Fondo options for you to choose from: the Cessna (87km), the 737 (165km) and the Jumbo Jet (240km).
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 Cooking Lake Airport and turn back to the Olympiette Centre when 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 240kms, this could be your biggest ride ever!
