Get that rust off before riding season!

The days are becoming longer and weather is getting drier. Its time to pull the bikes out of storage, dust them off, and get those cycling legs back into shape. The creators of RBC GranFondo Whistler and XFONDO have designed a weekend camp trip to get you back on your steed (road or gravel) and riding once again.

Camp Fondo will be based out of the Kettle Valley Beach Resort where riders will meet on Friday at the Welcome Reception. On Saturday, riders will be able to choose between road or gravel guided rides through the beautiful Okanagan landscape. Groups will head out on their fully supported ride and will all end up at the same pub for a post-ride snack and beverage. Dinner will be served family style so that everyone can share their experiences and learnings before heading off to rest. Sunday morning will once again offer both options of road or gravel rides, all ending up back at the hotel for a happy hour and final briefing before everyone heads home.

Guided by World Tour cyclists Svein Tuft and Ryan Anderson, their combined wealth of knowledge and experience in the sport of cycling will ensure you have both an educational and supported ride. A support team will on-course to support with minor mechanical or medical issues throughout the weekend.

Frequently Asked Questions

What will the caliber of cycling be?

This ride is targeted to for cyclists who can do a 100km road ride in under 5 hours. If there are enough participants to separate into multiple groups, we will make sure to adapt them to the riders’ caliber.

Is food included for the entire weekend?

Due to the nature of the event, we will not be providing all meals for the weekend. Camp Fondo will supply appetizers at the Welcome Reception, snacks at the Happy Hours, and a family style dinner on Saturday evening. We will also have some food available during the ride so pack your pockets before departing. Everything else is up to you.

Can I book a shared accommodation if I am coming alone?

No. Shared accommodations are meant for people who know each other and who are coming together. We will require the name of both participants when registering under the shared accommodation option. If you are coming solo, please book that option to get your own room.

Can I ride both road and gravel?

Of course! Riders will have the ability to self-select their rides in the morning so you will be able to decide if you want to go on a road or gravel ride for both Saturday and Sunday.
