GranFondos are mass particifation cycling events that are incredibly popular in Europe and increasingly gain momentum in North America.
In Septembe 2010, Kevin Thomson's and Neil McKinnon's dream of producing a world-class cycling event to serve as a legacy event of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games came true. The RBC GranFondo Whistler allowed 4,000 passionate cyclists the opportunity to ride the world-renowned Sea to Sky Highway in a dedicated car-free lane from downtown Vancouver to Whistler.
Rider capacity has grown to 7,000 cyclists in 2011 and 2012 as participants were pouring in from all around the globe as the event quickly established itself as one of the premier cycling events in North America.
Every year since its inception in 2010, the event has been a recipient of Get Out There Magazine's Readers' Choice Award for Best Cycling Event in Western Canada!
