The day before the big ride has always been an event in itself at RBC GranFondo Whistler. Friday’s VeloSpoke Bike Expo –open to the public – is one of Canada’s largest road bike and lifestyle expos. This year we are investing heavily into the show, designing the expo into an even bigger, better experience. Vendor places are already almost sold out despite more being on offer compared to 2018.
What’s new? With a DJ spinning tunes all day in its home base of the Vancouver Convention Centre, expect lounge areas, a new speaking stage hosting discussions from well-known faces, plenty of merch and swag available to celebrate the upcoming 2020 UCI Gran Fondo World Championships in Vancouver / Whistler and the option to join the all-new downtown Vancouver Pasta Party hosted at the Sheraton Wall Centre hotel.
The pasta party is a beloved staple of athletic events – and this year we’re happy to be hosting our own delicious carbohydrate party in association with GCN for the first time.
Located just a few minutes’ walk from the Expo, pasta will be served from 18:30 – 20:30 and include special guests, music, and much more. With World Championship qualification on the line the next day (or simply just the matter of biking your way to Whistler), there’s never a better way to fuel for the challenge. Tickets are on sale now for only C$50.
