Gran Fondo welcomes Abraflex as the returning Paisley Rest Stop Host


Saugeen Memorial Hospital Foundation is pleased to announce that Abraflex has once again joined the Gran Fondo Lake Huron team as the host of the Paisley Rest Stop! Cyclists on the 70k, 110k, and 160k routes will be thrilled to be welcomed to the Paisley Annex for a lovely rest stop hosted by Abraflex. This stop has become known as the “Butter-tart stop” as cyclists last year were amazed to arrive for a break and find fresh butter-tarts waiting for them.
