Expect road closures for GranFondo bike race next weekend
Expect road closures next weekend, as thousands of cyclists take to the streets in Niagara for the inaugural GranFondo bike race.
The September 14th, 125 km ride starts at the Falls, along the Niagara Parkway to Niagara on the Lake.
From there riders head south to Portage Road, west to the Thorold Tunnel before looping around Short Hills Provincial Park.
Cyclists then return to the Niagara Parkway for the final 10 km trek to the finish line in Niagara Falls.
Organizors say roads including the Parkway and Thorold Tunnel will be closed for the duration of the ride to create a safe environment for the cyclists.
Residents will receive mailouts and there will be a door to door campaign to get the word out.
Signs will also be posted along the route closer to the event.
