RBC GranFondo Whistler Weekend

RBC Gran Fondo Weekend in Whistler

The RBC Gran Fondo is coming back to Whistler BC, and you’re not going to want to miss this family-friendly event on the weekend of September 9, 2023.

Riders of all skill levels can choose from multiple route distances, including the Forte which starts in Vancouver’s Stanley Park and follows the iconic Sea to Sky highway all the way to Whistler’s Olympic Village.

With world-class support teams and rest areas, traffic-free roads, some of the most stunning scenery in the world, and a music festival to celebrate in the Coast Mountains of Whistler, it’s no surprise this event has been voted the best Gran Fondo in North America.

When you’re finished with your ride, celebrate in Whistler’s Olympic Plaza, quench your thirst in the beer garden, take your kids to the nearby playground, and enjoy some live music with your meal. There’ll be plenty of amazing food!

After pedaling through the Rocky Mountains you might also want to take a good long soak in the hot tub at one of our professionally managed chalets or rental cabins. If you’re looking for accommodations in Whistler to help turn this event into a short weekend vacation, contact Aloha Whistler to plan your stay.

Make new friends, meet new people, and forge memories to last a lifetime in beautiful Whistler, BC. For more information and to register for the RBC Gran Fondo event, visit:
