Memories are made on days like these

It’s not the chill that runs down your spine in Stanley Park, the countdown just begun. It’s not the sight of thousands of riders sweeping majestically through the best that British Columbia has to offer, mountains and ocean and all. It’s not even the ice cold beverage that your legs and lungs have so deservedly earned slaking down your throat at Whistler’s iconic finish line festival. Not really.

What it’s truly about are the shared moments, the connections, the emotions that we’ll forever own from that moment forth. The support we give to one another, the cheers, and the homemade signs crafted in marker pen, glitter and love. The stories told, time and time again, until they’re firmly rooted in our interconnected lore through the language of adulation and pride. The togetherness we all experience when we come together to do something incredible on two simple wheels.

2022 event - frequently asked questions

Why aren't you running this year when restrictions are being lifted?

We’d love to be hosting you, truly. RBC GranFondo Whistler is a complex and multi-layered operation to plan, requiring a year-round staff force which, due to the pandemic, has not been in place since April 2020. In addition, many of the permits we require for the event to take place need to be secured far in advance of the summer. At the time of these deadlines, the covid precautions in BC were much more stringent than they are today.

We decided that what was important to us and to you was to make an early and clear decision that, while tough, left no room for ambiguity. Our goal is to be able to come back triumphantly. We’ve also been using the time to come up with some pretty awesome surprises for you – more will be revealed in the coming weeks and months!

When does registration open for RBC GranFondo Whistler 2022 open / what is the link?

September 11, 2021 at 00:01am.

You can sign up via this link (inactive before Sept 11).

Will there be any changes to the event? Any safety considerations?

We work closely in tandem with the Province of BC and our stakeholders to monitor and follow all safety guidance pertaining to covid and mass participation events.

While we cannot predict the exact environment that will prevail in September 2022, we will hold the event in accordance with all Provincial Health Office stipulations to keep you and our staff and volunteers safe.

What happens if COVID cases increase again and there are new restrictions?

As since the start of the pandemic, our aim has been to communicate consistently and clearly with you. With the vaccination rate in Canada being one of the highest in the world, we are optimistic for the state of the event in 2022.

As it is impossible to know what the future holds, be reassured that your registration will be honoured regardless. All riders who registered for the cancelled event in 2020 are having their registration rolled over for no extra charge to their choice of 2022 or 2023. Your registration for 2022 would be treated with the same flexibility.

Will your refund policy change?

Since the event began in 2010, we have never made any changes to our refund policy, nor will covid cause this to happen. This also does not affect the longstanding transfers and deferrals policies

Will there be a vaccine mandate, vaccine passport mandate or mask mandate?

Again, we will follow all guidance issued by the Provincial Health Office as it relates to September 2022, when it becomes available.

How do I roll over my registration from 2020?

We will be contacting you via email with specific instructions on September 11, 2021.

You will be able to login to your CCN account, and if you had registered for 2020’s RBC GranFondo Whistler or UCI Gran Fondo World Championships Road Race, your total will be zeroed at checkout (unless changing category to another with a higher entry price, eg Medio -> Gran Fondo)

How do I roll over my pasta party ticket?

All 2020 Pasta Party tickets will be honored at the door in 2022. Further information and your ticket will be sent to you including time and date (TBC) closer to the event.

What happens with my UCI qualification?

The UCI will have directly contacted you via email with further details about this. Please note that the UCI have recently expanded the qualifying criteria from the top 20% to 25% of your age group.

You can reach out to the UCI via [email protected] for any further information or clarification.
