RBC GranFondo Bike Race
This weekend will mark the 4th annual RBC GranFondo Whistler Race. For those that aren't familiar with Gran Fondo loosely translated from Italian, gran fondo means "big ride". That is definitely one way to describe the 122 km ride from downtown Vancouver to Whistler on the world-renowned Sea to Sky Highway. The 7000 competitors are spoilt with a vehicle free lane to enjoy the breathtaking views of this spectacular route.
The race finish area at Whistler Olympic Plaza will be a hive of activity so make sure you head down to cheer on the competitors as they cross the finish line. See below for the full race day schedule:
|6:45am||GranFondo Start||West Georgia Street|
|10:00am||First Riders Expected||Day Lot 4, Whistler|
|10:00am - 4:00pm||Celebration Plaza||Whistler Olympic Plaza|

My girlfriend and I are in our late 20's. We drove up from Seattle for the long holiday weekend. The hotel is literally in the center of it all! Excellent location. We arrived early and checked in around noon. We were told the room wasn't ready yet but we could give them a cell phone number if the room came available early. They called within about 30 min. The service was great! The room was clean and very comfortable. Being in the center of the village we had everything at our finger tips! Great Hotel! I will be back in the winter for sure!
