Event Information

 Shawnigan Lake, as part of the Cowichan Valley Regional District, is the host region for one of the most anticipated mass participation cycling events in BC. On September 26, hundreds of participants will take to the exclusive gravel roads of Mosaic Forest Management in the 2nd Annual BURNT BRIDGE CLASSIC GRAVEL FONDO.  Launching from Camp Pringle, cycling enthusiasts of various age groups and abilities will tackle two routes  of remote challenging terrain consisting of long steep climbs and twisty descents. Participants will be provided with exceptional service and support and experience breathtaking views. With the addition of lodging options and a complimentary banquet dinner, the event provides exceptional value and satisfaction.

Gravel Fondo’s are mass participation cycling adventure rides that take place usually on exclusive gravel roads away from city roads and busy highways. It allows people to ride at their own pace, enjoy nature, and share their experiences with family and friends.
