Gran Fondos are mass participation cycling events that have enjoyed incredible popularity in Europe for decades and are gaining momentum in North America.
Loosely translated from Italian, gran fondo means “big ride”. These rides are often a hundred kilometres or more and designed for a large number of cyclists at a variety of skill levels – everyone from the competitive cyclist to the amateur enjoy these events.
GranFondo Canada introduced the first world-class gran fondo to Canada in 2010 with the RBC GranFondo Whistler. Join the ride of your life this year on September 7, 2013!
