Welcome to paradise
The RBC GranFondo Whistler is a stunning point-to-point cycling journey along the famous Sea to Sky corridor between Vancouver and Whistler. Both locations offer an unrivaled Canadian and West Coast experience, with fantastic accommodation options, a variety of activities keep you entertained and a whole host of ways to get around.
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. Vancouver is home to world class restaurants, shopping, attractions, arts and entertainment, incredible pre/post travel opportunities, with a year – round mild climate.
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.
Located a scenic two hours’ drive (or 122 km cycle!) north of Vancouver in the spectacular Coast Mountains, Whistler is commonly ranked the number one mountain resort in North America.
With family-fun, world-class dining and a vibrant pedestrian-only Village, Whistler offers a unique and memorable year-round mountain experience. Celebrate your GranFondo victory and stay a few days – you can make it as laid-back or action-packed as you like!
