GranFondo's are mass participation cycling events that have enjoyed incredible popularity in Europe for decades. Loosely translated from Italian, GranFondo means "big ride." GrandFondo's appeal to cyclists of all skill levels - everyone from the competitive to amateur.
RBC GranFondo Banff, the only “big ride” in North America to take place entirely within a national park, will see cyclists follow a beautifully scenic 142 km route around Canada’s iconic Rocky Mountains on August 23, starting and finishing in the picturesque town of Banff.
A true destination event in one of Canada’s most scenic locations, cyclists will connect intimately with the natural and cultural heritage and wildlife of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Registration for the third annual RBC GranFondo Banff is now open!! This event has sold out every year. Keep in mind capacity for the event will be kept to a maximum of 1,500 participants.
