Crush your fitness goals this summer with a RBC GranFondo Whistler training program

May 9 2019, 7:16 pm

The temperatures are finally rising in Vancouver, the (mostly) sunshine-filled days are longer, and there’s no better place to spend time than the great outdoors.

Sure, working out in the gym is fine for those dreary, rainy days during autumn and winter when the only place you want to be is inside. But now that summer’s almost here, it’s time to put gym classes on hold and hit the road instead.

Now’s the time to challenge yourself and take your cycling to the next level. Whether you’re a beginner or intermediate cyclist, Fondo Clinics presented by Helpforme, are the best way to get on your bike and discover the passion of cycling. Clinics begin the second week of June with a kick-off party.

Plus, it’s the best way to train for the RBC GranFondo Whistler happening this September.

Cycling/Fondo Clinics

With 12-week programs and clinics for those at beginner and intermediate levels, there’s something for everyone. But the best part is that small groups and friendly leaders make each session so much more enjoyable — and all Fondo Clinics riders get this beautiful performance jersey for free included in their registration!

Why not make 2019 the year that you take part in an epic cycling event? RBC GranFondo Whistler is North America’s largest amateur cycling event covering three different distances: 55km — Medio, 122km — Gran Fondo, and 152km — Forte.

If you’re hoping to do a shorter, more family-friendly route, the Medio category could be the perfect option. As the shortest route, it’s open to beginners who want to start off by taking shorter distances and it’s a thoroughly worthwhile, fun experience.

This year, GranFondo Whistler takes place on September 7 and it’s a UCI Gran Fondo World Series event. So if you’re feeling up to it, you can attempt to qualify for the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships which will be held at RBC GranFondo Whistler in September 2020 — open to everyone.

Cycling/Fondo Clinics

Roughly 5,000 cyclists are expected to join the GranFondo this year between Vancouver and Whistler, on traffic-free roads. And since it’s going to be the first time that the World Championships are being hosted in America, it’s a huge deal.
