The Medio is perfect for those looking for an achievable challenge as well as families and groups of differing abilities.
This year we’ve torn up the rulebook. For the first time in RBC GranFondo Whistler history, Medio riders will start in Whistler and cycle southbound down the Sea-to-Sky corridor before venturing up to the spellbinding vistas boasted along the Callaghan Valley. And with a protective neutralized rollout keeping speeds limited to begin with, you’ll be kept safe.
Including 55km and 800m of elevation to enjoy, there’s a well-stocked rest-stop up at the Whistler Olympic Park to collect your friends at before the sweeping smooth downhill rejoins you with the main Gran Fondo field for a grand procession back up to the cheering crowds at the finish line in Whistler.
