Gibsons Grind Gran Fondo

The Gibsons Grind is a self paced ride that takes place on paved roads. It starts at the Langdale ferry terminal in Gibsons and winds its way to Highway 101. From there the only difference between the various courses is how far they go out the highway.  As such, you could do your own custom route that is anywhere from 10 km on up.  Once you are on the highway, you can turn around any time you like. The routes will be marked with color coded arrows for each route length.

The full route is comparable to the RBC GranFondo Whistler.  There are a lot of hills here, some quite long and steep.  Make sure you choose the course length which suits your ability before taking on the Gibsons Grind.  The winners of the Gibsons Grind are the people who have the most fun.

After a ride like the Grind, you'll need to refuel.  We've lined up a great place to do that: Persephone Brewing Company.  The barbeque is open to all. Please purchase BBQ tickets for yourself and any non-riding friends and family when you register online, on or before June 17th. On event day tickets can be purchased at Persephone Brewing Company based on food availability. Event day price is $10.
