Granfondos

Whistler Gran Fondo Finish Line

Granfondo means “big ride” in Italian and they are mass participation cycling events. They may have a race category, but the idea is to challenge yourself against the clock in a single day ride. Granfondos are meant to be challenging, but encourage the average cyclist to sign up to ride a beautiful course and enjoy the event with others who love the sport of cycling. I have done three first time Granfondos in the last year, Whistler, Axel Merckx in Penticton and Kelowna. All in beautiful British Columbia that offers enough hilly terrain and fabulous views to make it all worthwhile.
