May 9–  Welcome to the RCC Gravel FUNdo! A gravel bike ride/tour/race that takes riders on some of the most scenic and challenging roads in the Qu’Appelle Valley. This style of event is becoming extremely popularly all over North America, and it’s happening in Saskatchewan this summer!

The FUNdo Epic will be a figure 8-style course covering 94km, while the FUNdo Mini will be one loop of 54km. The majority of the course will be loose gravel/dirt, so bring a bike that can handle off-road riding. The ride will be unsupported and riders will have to carry their own nutrition and water. Cross bikes, gravel bikes, and mountain bikes are mostly commonly used. If we get rain prior to the event or it’s looking like rain day of the event, we have alternate routes that will be used. Paint, arrows, and pylons will guide you through the course. Riders MUST have a Saskatchewan Cycling membership for insurance. Big thank you to our club sponsors Dutch Cycle and Western Cycle. Support you local bike shop

Start area/parking will be at the Condie Nature Refuge- 14km NW of Regina, just off of Hwy 11 at Exit A; watch for signs.
Sign on in the parking lot at 9:00am on Sunday June 21st . Start time 10:00am. Food and prizes to follow.

Cost: $25.00, pre-registration closes Tuesday, June 16th. $40.00 late entry or day of event.
