2017 RBC GranFondo Whistler

RBC GranFondo Whistler

September 09 2017
Vancover, British Columbia, Canada
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 afternoon concert.
 
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 (55km).
 
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.
