Van­cou­ver might be bike-friendly, but on a nor­mal day, the idea of rid­ing out of the city to Whistler might seem daunt­ing to many. The Granfondo Whistler takes thou­sands of rid­ers onto a lane of the Sea-to-sky High­way for a scenic trip with 1,700 m of el­e­va­tion gain. Ride 122 km as part of the gran fondo or race the route in giro race op­tion for Cat. 1, 2 or 3 rac­ers. If you’re strong, there’s a trip up Cy­press Moun­tain in the 155-km “forte” dis­tance.
