GranFondo
The full 122 km from Vancouver to Whistler travelling in a dedicated lane width. The course provides an extreme challenge with approximately 1,700 metres of climbing.

Medio
55 km from Squamish to Whistler still offers plenty of challenges as the lion's share of the hills are in this second half of the route.

Alta Classe
An upgraded GranFondo experience. Ride the same 122 km course, but indulge in extra perks and benefits. Start off the day on Georgia Street with your very own start lounge fully stocked with nutritional supplements, coffee machines and access to private toilets. Then position yourself at the start in an exclusive staging area located at the front of the pack. When you reach the finish in Whistler, unwind in your very own dedicated Alta Classe lounge.

Prizing

The journey itself will be the ultimate reward, but we wouldn’t leave you without a memento of the event.

Individuals

Every individual who completes the admirable task of crossing the finish line will receive a one of a kind finishers medal inscribed with the event date to remember all the training and hard work they put into that day.

Note: Medals will be handed out only at the finish line; recipients must be present to claim their award.

Teams

Ride with friends and family in the GranFondo or Medio category as a team! Riders can form teams of TWO (2) or teams of 5 to 9. The winning team of 2 and the winning team of 5 to 9 in the GranFondo category will receive prizes. 

Each of the winning Male, Female and Mixed teams in the GranFondo category will receive a $1000 Gift Certificate to Gotham Steakhouse & Cocktail Bar, as well as merchandise prizing from Thule. Prizing for teams of TWO (2) will be announced at a later time. Please go to our dedicated Teams page for full details.
