RBC GranFondo Whistler

September 12, 2015

Start training for 2015 now and you could be part of one of the most anticipated road cycling events in British Columbia. 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.

Highway Update March 31, 2015: Highway sweeping is currently underway (finish time is weather dependent).

Stay for the weekend and enjoy events on both days from the post-race celebration in Whistler Olympic Plaza to the fun, family-friendly events and a pursuit challenge on the Sunday.

Plan Your Ride

Why rush back to the city after the ride? There are plenty of places to stay and enjoy your victory 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
