Gran Fondo Prince Edward Island

August 26 2016 - August 28 2016
Prince Edward Island, Canada

Prince Edward Island is a beautiful place to ride and we are very pleased to be organizing the first Gran Fondo in the Atlantic Region of Canada.

Our unique combination of scenery and coast-to-coast gran and medio fondo rides, combined with timed climb and sprint sections will offer a challenge to riders of all levels over three days, at beautiful time of year.

On Friday, August 22, we have a medio fondo of 57km, and our Alta Classe (VIP) registrants will take part in a Celebrity ride.

On Saturday, August 23, there will be a 145km gran fondo and a 95k medio fondo to suit your interests and level of training. There will be an opportunity to stop for a lunch or enter feeding zones and ride continuously.

Starting in Charlottetown, we will provide lead and support vehicles to assist with traffic and safe passage.

On Sunday, August 24 we have our final 57km ride.
