The Cortofondo category is the perfect starter distance for those new to cycling or returning to the sport after several years off the saddle. Just like the Mediofondo and Granfondo categories, the Cortofondo route begins on Penticton’s Main Street, near Lake Okanagan and adjacent to Gyro Park. Riders in this category will travel up Upper Bench Road, through Penticton, before heading south along Eastside Road to Okanagan Falls. This route includes two hills – one at the start (Vancouver Hill) and the McLean Creek Road climb in Okanagan Falls, B.C. – and includes one aid station along the way.
