PHOTO: GranFondo rolls through Abbotsford

Riders near the top of the timed hill climb section on Sumas Mountain in Abbotsford during this year’s Prospera Valley Gran Fondo bike race. The 160 km-long Gran Fondo, the longest of three race course distances, started at 7 a.m. in Fort Langley and wound its way east along the Canada-U.S. border before tackling a grueling hill climb on Sumas Mountain and then back down the mountain and west towards Glen Valley to finish in Fort Langley. - Bob Friesen
