Event Links – Gran Fondo and other cycling events

Tumbler Ridge Gran Fondo – this one is in my plans for July 2021 if it goes ahead. Still waiting to hear if this is going ahead…

Whistler Gran Fondo – Unfortunately, there will not be a physical Whistler Gran Fondo in 2021. Consider this for your 2022 cycling plans. I did this one a few years ago…highly, highly recommended! The road is dedicated to cyclist all the way from Vancouver to Whistler. They even sweep the road before the event! A bit pricey but completely worth the money. I would recommend booking your Whistler accommodation early in 2022 and signing up for the event once you know how your cycling season goes. If you are training for the event we recommend our Highwood Pass, Four Hills of Banff, Sundre to Bearberry, and Banff to Lake Louise rides as fantastic training options that will get you in tip top shape for this Fondo. If you train in the hilly Foothills of Alberta you will have no problem doing this ~ sea level ride in BC.

Use your last bit of energy to smile at the finish line of the Whistler Gran Fondo…

Tour de Victoria – pick a distance from 15 km to 160 km in beautiful Victoria. In 2021 this event will be held in Oct.

DV 100 – Drayton Valley hosts a multi distance bike race and ride. This year it is held on Sept 11, 2021 so an alternative to the cancelled Whistler Gran Fondo. We have not done this ride…but it certainly looks interesting.
