Epic Tour GranFondo

September 09 2018
Milton, Ontario, Canada

Epic Tour Halton is a one-day fully supported cycling event that will lead you over some of the most spectacular roads the GTA has to offer.  Rolling country roads, dense forests and the Niagara Escarpment set stage for an EPIC DAY on your bike that you won’t soon forget.

Like a marathon, Epic Tour is about setting a personal goal, preparing yourself to achieve it and then going to it on event day – inspired by the spirit and energy of thousands of people all around you.

The measure of your day won’t be winning or losing – we are not a race.  It will be challenging yourself to rise beyond the ordinary and so something extraordinary – and share the experience with those closest to you.

Epic Tour offers a wide variety of distances to accomodate to all ages and skill levels: 170km, 150km, 125km, 100km, 80km, and 50km.
