Start Times

We will begin the ride at 9:00am sharp.

There will be clearly marked starting corrals for each distance. Be sure you are in your correct corral marked 60km, 88km, or 136km the longest distance riders start first.

Riders will follow a 'Pace Car' for the first several kilometers, in order to guide you safely out of town. If you're riding in the event, remember to use these first few kilometers to find yourself in an appropriate standing, complementing your experience and energy.  We further recommend that your starting position in the group is chosen according to the position that you anticipate to finish in (faster riders in the front, slower riders in the rear).

Gran Fondo Canmore is a timed event due to safety concerns we ask you treat this with a none racing attitude, as traffic is permitted on the highways. We encourage our riders to push themselves within their personal limitations and experience the ride in their own way. Always remember that safety is our first concern.  We ask that our riders carry this same attitude with them throughout the day.  Let's have fun and ride hard!
