Huge celebration

Think you know a good time?

Okay, okay, this is where the usual blurb tells you that this is the next best cycling experience going. But really you only need to know one thing – RBC GranFondo Silicon Valley is a party.

Naturally, you’ll ride out and back professionally supported over some of the most beautiful roads on the planet. Brunch options from award-winning restaurants? Sure. Winery detours? Check. There’s premium swag, chip timing and cop control as standard, but that’s not really what this weekend is all about.

From start-to-finish, we’re here to use two wheels as an excuse to throw one game changing fiesta. Think: hanging about with cycling celebrities, a home base at the Four Seasons Silicon Valley that’s turned into our very own ‘Celebration Plaza’ with DJs, bars and more, executive chef-curated food and drink thrown in, pool parties, the best brands all showing you their wares and some of the most influential folk in the ‘Valley, all rubbing shoulders, all here for some seriously good times.

If partying is your style, you just found the event for you.

“The event is one of the best  I’ve ever seen, anywhere…and the organisation is flawless.”
– Bob Roll, Former professional cyclist & Tour de France TV announcer
