Since 2010, the rbc Gran­fondo Whistler has given cy­clists the op­por­tu­nity to ride along a closed lane of the Sea-to-sky High­way be­tween Van­cou­ver and Whistler, B.C. The 122-km gran fondo route leaves Stan­ley Park and fin­ishes in Whistler Vil­lage. Other op­tions for the day in­clude a shorter trip in the 55-km medio fondo that has rid­ers head­ing out of Squamish in­stead of Van­cou­ver. For those look­ing for an added chal­lenge, the 152-km forte op­tion adds a trip up Cypress Moun­tain to the gran fondo route. All the routes fin­ish with an up­hill climb into Whistler, where ev­ery­one can rem­i­nisce over the beau­ti­ful scenery in the beer gar­den. With Red Truck Beer Com­pany as the suds spon­sor for the past three years, cy­clists can en­joy a drink pro­duced by a brew­ery that has cy­cling close to its core.
