The exciting 5th annual Bluewater International Granfondo welcomes cyclists to the Lambton County’s Bluewaterland, starting and finishing in the City of Sarnia’s beautiful Mike Weir Park.

Riders will have from July 26 – August 1 to ride the course. Please adhere to provincial covid guidelines.

There are four routes to choose from all of which will take in some outstanding views of Lambton County including finishing along the stunning shores of Lake Huron. There is no start to finish time as in traditional racing formats but rather timed sections that count toward the riders competition time. This means you can take your time between race sections, stop at the Fuel Stations and regroup to enjoy the ride with your friends and teammates.

At the finish a hot meal and beverage awaits you as well as finisher medals. It is a must do for both cycling enthusiasts and first timers. Whether you are looking to experience the enjoyment of riding on quite country roads or through thriving fruit orchards or challenge yourself on the rolling hills of Arkona you will find it all in this area of outstanding natural beauty.

Scott R., From Toronto

"The whole event from start to finish was really well organized whether it was time on the bike, the morning set up or the post ride food and entertainment. It was a lot of fun and the whole event had a positive energy to it. We'll be back in 2018 and are already looking forward to it!"

“I have participated in a number of triathlon and running events which have always been well organized. This was my first cycling race (50k) and it was by far the most well run, friendly and fun event, with a great venue. The volunteers were outstanding and the course was designed for all levels”

“It was the best organized sporting event I ever attended! I’ve participated in marathons, triathlons and roller blade races, and BIGF was tops. I plan to be back in 2018 and am trying to persuade 3 brothers to join me."
