The world’s most beautiful Gran Fondos?
Cycling can take you to truly incredible places. Sure, you could take on laps near the urban city or down some unassuming country lanes, but isn’t it far more epic to ride your bike up alpine passes under azure skies or to be zipping along coastal rollercoasters while you overlook the breakers in the vast shimmering ocean, mountains gleaming omnipresent in the background? We like to think so.
Fortunately, there are a few Gran Fondos out there that tick these boxes. For some of the very best, look no further than the RBC GranFondo events in Whistler and Silicon Valley. Each event makes the most of stunningly beautiful locations that enjoy traditionally warm weather, adding yet another reason behind their “bucketlist” appeal:
Epic locations, Epic History
On February 1st 2018, it was officially announced that the 35,000th cyclist had signed up to the award-winning Whistler ride since its inception in 2010.
In addition to the envied badge of being the current largest Gran Fondo in North America, this milestone saw the lucky 35,000th rider being upgraded to their renowned weekend VIP option, Alta Classe.
Upgrade to Alta Classe
From exclusive parties to the all-inclusive luxury experience throughout, our all-time favourite feature has to be getting to ride traffic-free over the famous Lions Gate Bridge before anyone else in the pack. Fortunately, Alta Classe is still open for registration if you too want a taste of the cycling high-life.
