Gran Fondo PEI @ Charlottetown, PE

Three days of awesome scenery, food, music & culture at Atlantic Canada’s only gran fondo cycling event. The same weekend as the PEI Jazz & Blues and Art in the Open events.

Prince Edward Island is a beautiful place to ride, and we are hosting the 2nd annual GranFondo, the first of it’s kind in the Atlantic Region of Canada.

Our unique combination of scenery and coast-to-coast gran and medio fondo rides, combined with timed climb and sprint sections will offer a challenge to riders of all levels over three days, at a beautiful time of year.

On Friday, August 22, there will be a 57.58 km ride.

On Saturday, August 23, there will be a 145.98 km gran fondo and a 100 km medio fondo to suit your interests and level of training. There will be an opportunity to stop for lunch and nutrition zones. That evening there will be a banquet and award ceremony for all riders.

Starting in Charlottetown, we will provide lead and support vehicles to assist with traffic and safe passage.

On Sunday, August 24, we have our final 57.2 km ride.
