Why else should you ride here? As an event we’ve been voted the best Gran Fondo in North America for the last two years running, with the best voted airport in North America (YVR) only a 20 minute direct metro train from downtown and a variety of excellent hotels for all budget ranges.


Vancouver is a spectacular cosmopolitan city in a location of unsurpassed natural beauty. It is bordered by incredible mountains, the sparkling ocean and our 1,000 acre jewel, Stanley Park.

Best of all, Vancouver is a clean, green, safe, friendly and bikeable/walkable city. It’s a must-visit part of an amazing Gran Fondo experience.
