RBC GranFondo Whistler

RBC GranFondo Whistler

September 08 2018
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
RBC GranFondo Whistler is the bucket list experience for every cyclist.
 
This spectacular point-to-point ride takes you from beautiful Stanley Park in downtown Vancouver all the way to the iconic village of Whistler, traffic free for the only day of the year. After departing along Vancouver's famous lofty Lions Gate bridge, you get to experience cycling along the incredible coastal mountain Sea-to-Sky corridor.
 
The ride is a whole weekend of festivities, including VeloSpoke Bike Expo on Friday September 7th at the Vancouver Convention Centre for package pickup. The finish line at Whistler is truly a party with a free hot meal and ice cold beer at the purpose-built Celebration Plaza festival zone for all cyclists, followed by a rocking afternoon concert.
 
The categories for the event include the Forte (152km) which starts with an epic switchback climb up Cypress Mountain, the GranFondo (122km) and the Medio (TBD).
