2017 RBC Gran Fondo Whistler
September 9th, Vancouver, British Columbia
RBC GranFondo Whistler is the bucket list experience for every cyclist!
This spectacular point-to-point ride takes you from Stanley Park in downtown Vancouver all the way to Whistler in your own dedicated lane on the scenic Sea-to-Sky highway with beautiful coastal mountain views. You even get to experience riding over Lions Gate Bridge car-free!
The ride is a whole weekend of festivities, including the VeloSpoke Expo on Friday September 8th at the Vancouver Convention Centre. The finish line at Whistler is truly a celebration party with BBQ and beer garden for all cyclists and an evening concert, which last year headlined Steven Page.
In 2016 the RBC GranFondo Whistler was officially the largest Gran Fondo in North America with the greatest number of cyclists crossing the iconic Whistler finish line.
The event has established itself as the premier cycling event in Canada and North America.
The categories for the event include the Forte (152km) which starts with an epic mountain climb up Cypress Mountain, the GranFondo (122km) and the Medio (TBA).
The Giro category, sponsored by Robert J Macdonald, has a $50,000 CAD prize purse that is split equally between male and female winners. The race provides competitive licensed category 1, 2, 3 riders an exciting opportunity to race the 122 km distance for a top place purse of $15,000 CAD.
To celebrate, everyone who registers for RBC GranFondo Whistler in the next 24 hours will receive a $15 gift certificate to use in their official store.
Whether that's for transportation, gift entries or 2017 merchandise (hint: coming soon!) - you decide! Offer expires Monday April 10 at 2PM. Gift certificate will be emailed separately.
