Celebrity Cyclists

We are excited to announce our Celebrity Cyclists for the 2019 Gran Fondo Lake Huron Presented by Bruce Power!

This year, we welcome six celebrity cyclists.  Bharath Nangia (President and CEO of NPX), Brian Longmire (Host of 98 The Beach), Josh Hopkin (Defenceman for the Saugeen Shores Winterhawks), Nathan Perrott (Bruce Power Firefighter & previous Pro/NHL player), Josh Cassidy (Canadian Paralympian & Boston Marathon winner), and Darryl Spector (President of Promation Nuclear.) Many of our Celebrity Cyclists are excited to challenge others to fundraise, donate and ride in the Gran Fondo Presented by Bruce Power. These challenges include Bharath Nangia challenging Darryl Spector (mission accomplished!) and his team over at Promation Nuclear, Brian Longmire challenging all of his listeners, Josh Hopkin challenging other local sports teams as well as other WOAA teams, and Darryl Spector challenging other local nuclear supplier-partners to put in a team to raise funds!
