RBC GranFondo Whistler

September 12, 2015

Join fellow road cycling enthusiasts in the RBC GranFondo Whistler as they cycle the route from Vancouver to Whistler on the Sea to Sky Highway, over 122 kilometres of winding mountain road with stunning views across Howe Sound and the Coast Mountain Range. Recreational, advanced and elite level cyclists are all welcome, and families can join in the fun at the finish line at the post-race celebrations and Family Fundo for kids.

Highway Update May 11, 2015: Highway sweeping is complete. Happy training!

Post-Race Celebrations and Award Ceremony

Date: Saturday September 12, 2015
Location: Whistler Olympic Plaza

Family Fundo

Date: Saturday September 12, 2015
Location: Whistler Olympic Plaza
Description: A free event for kids 12 and under. A bike course will be set up where kids will have the opportunity to spin their wheels and learn a bit more about cycling. Please bring a helmet and your bike - everyone who participates will receive a ribbon. No planning needed, just show up and have fun!

Training

The only way to train for the GranFondo is to pedal, pedal, pedal. A pre-ride is a great way to become familiar with the course, know the challenges and plan how to pace yourself on the day (and stop for pictures along the way). Why not plan a pre-ride and meet the family in Whistler for a night or two in the mountains, or stay and tackle some of the other road rides in the area to get your mountain legs.

Recovery

No need to rush off after the ride - there are plenty of places to stay and enjoy a relaxing recovery in Whistler.

  • Find the perfect accommodation for a deep sleep after the event
  • Soak your muscles in your own hot tub or book a post-race massage at one of Whistler's spas
  • Join up with other participants in one of Whistler's bars, pubs or restaurants to raise a glass to victory
  • Turn it into an outdoor adventure weekend? Try bungee jumping, mountain biking or another summer activity
  • If you prefer to rest after the race ride the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola, take a gentle hike or chill out by the lakes
