The Mediofondo (85 km) is for riders looking for an additional challenge. Similar to other categories, this route travels through Penticton, Okanagan Falls, and Oliver. As the route enters the Oliver area, Mediofondo riders will pass the Inkameep Provincial Park and continue along Okanagan Highway before turning up the challenging Secrest Hill Road climb. The new section provides participants with one of the best “hidden” climbs in the South Okanagan. Secrest passes the entrance to Covert Farms before heading west and merging with Granfondo riders on Willowbrook Road. The Mediofondo route features three fully stocked aid stations and over 970 meters climbing.
