RBC GranFondo Bike Race

3rd September, 2013

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:
