So folks, here it is. Introducing a new distance and category to the RBC GranFondo Whistler family; the Forte!


What, How, Huh?
Welcome to the Forte, it’s the RBC GranFondo Whistler with a small detour up to the summit of Cypress (an additional 30 KM and almost 800 meters of climbing)

Total distance is 152 KM and just under 2500 meters vertical gain

500 hearty climbers will leave the start line at 6 am with a full escort that even the Prime Minister would envy

The early Forte start will facilitate the lead Forte riders merging with the lead GranFondo riders at the base of Cypress Mountain (no getting stuck in rider traffic)

Remember, it’s limited capacity, and now with less than 200 spots left!



Early Bird Deadline is January 8, 2014

Early Bird price of $225 ends January 8 at noon PST. Register now and save $25.

The New Years Resolution price is $220 until January 8.

Everyone who registers in the RBC GranFondo Whistler by January 8, will receive a discount on the Nordic X-Trainer Pass.
