Tapping into their community’s passion for cycling, Royal LePage in the Comox Valley recently hosted their first annual Royal LePage Petite Fondo ride in support of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation — a scaled-down version of the popular “Gran Fondo” event.
Riders were offered three choices for distance through the Comox Valley’s quiet country roads and amazing mountain views, all departing from the Royal LePage office in Courtenay, BC. The 35 km and 75 km rides had cyclists stop for tastings at the Beaufort and Blue Moon wineries, while the family ride kicked off with bike decorating and included a stop for ice cream before returning to the office for the post-ride BBQ.
Royal LePage in the Comox Valley agents Lisa Zuk, Tina Vincent, Rob Saunders, Chris Brulotte, Monica McDermit, Mark Fleming, Carla Arnold and Barbara Magnessen rode in the event alongside family, business partners and community members.
An impressive $7,188 was raised through event registrations and pledges in support of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation, 100 per cent of which will benefit the Comox Valley Transition Society (Lilli House).
