Clubs & Teams

Thinking of bringing your friends, your riding buddies, your cycling group to Okanagan Granfondo this year? We welcome groups of all ages, stages and abilities to join the Okanagan Granfondo as a club. Any group of people (10 or more) who come to ride together can be considered a club. If you’re planning to come as a club in 2023, we request that you add your club to your online registration here. Still yet to register? When you sign up, you’ll be prompted to add your club name during the registration process.

There are many great perks to registering your club for the event:

  • 10% discount on your registration. To activate, please email info@okanagangranfondo.com subject line: Club Discount
  • Special section for clubs to gather pre and post event (limited tent space available)
  • Exclusive club event pre-Okanagan Granfondo (more details to follow)
  • The ability to participate in our Team Competition, if desired
  • Club captains/organizers will have the ability to join a special club information evening in February 2023

Team Competition

Bragging rights and prizes are on the line for the 2023 OG Team Competition. The rules are simple: the 5th rider across the finish line counts as the “team time”. Therefore, it will be the teams that work together that win this event. The team competition only applies to the Granfondo category. Granfondo riders can form teams with a maximum of 9 and minimum of 5 riders. For Mixed Teams, a minimum 2 of first 5 finishers must be of a different gender.
