First we pedal, then we party!

Jim Cuddy to highlight this year’s post-ride party at Whistler Celebration Plaza

This year, we’re really amping up the post-ride festivities with a Whistler Celebration Plaza party fit for a 10thedition!

Famous Players Band, probably the best damn live band in Canada, will be playing two sets in Whistler, including a set with very special guest Jim Cuddy of Blue Rodeo.

Jim will also be singing O Canada before the start in Stanley Park with fellow legend Barney Bentall, and in-between he’s going to be riding the full Gran Fondo as well. Not a bad effort!

Refueling after the ride!

Thanks to Whistler Cooks, finishers can choose from one of the following stomach pleasers:

  • Pulled pork burger
  • Canadian smokies
  • Falafel dish
  • Potato salad

Along with the refueling, you gotta hydrate, right? Your post-ride drink ticket is good for one delicious Red Truck craft beer or wine from Arterra. New this year, you can also choose the soft-drink alternative of Yerba Mate.

More More More to do in Celebration Plaza

Want to stretch out before it tightens up? We’ll have a Kinetix Recovery Zone to help work our the kinds.

Want a photo of you + friends to celebrate all that’s holy about spandex? The Helpforme Photo Booth will be the spot to help commemorate one of the rides of a lifetime.

You’ll find all this + more surprises at Celebration Plaza 2019.

After the party, there’s the afterparty . . . at Tommys

We’re super stoked to let you know about the brand new official afterparty in Whistler, hosted by the renovated and reopened Tommys.

Your rider wristband gets you free cover before 10.30pm as well as a free drink on entry! Riders also get 15% off all VIP packages, if that’s the way you roll.
