Welcome to GranFondo Canada
This blog post is for information only, and is from the GranFondo Canada website.
Imagine for one day, the best possible cycling roads are closed to traffic. Before you is an epic route with challenging climbs and thrilling descents. All you have to do is concentrate on the beauty around you. You’re feeling fit and you’re lined up for an exciting ride with a group of fellow cyclists. It’s not a race, so there’s no pressure. You can ride whatever pace you want. And no matter what pace you choose, you’re not likely riding alone. There will be a fast bunch at the front if you want to keep up with them and you can count on local spectators cheering along the way. The scenery is better than you would see in a magazine. The ride ends with a well-earned massage and a party, and everyone’s invited.
This is the GranFondo Canada experience.
GranFondo Canada introduced the first world-class gran fondo to Canada in 2010 with the RBC GranFondo Whistler, giving cyclists the unique opportunity to ride fully supported from Vancouver to Whistler on the Sea to Sky highway in a dedicated lane. We are now introducing this “Big Ride” experience to world renowned locations across the country. Count on GranFondo Canada to be in the best locations providing the best cycling experience.
