The VBC has been doing the “Gran Fondo” for a few years where we’ve intentionally had a lot of pace groups available in one ride. Please join us in one of the pace groups/distances listed below.

This ride meets at the Starbucks by the Albertson's in Salmon Creek. The start location for the Gran Fondo West which has been happening for a few years. But...the route heads south. And, even has a stop at one of Vancouver's finest: The Donut Nook.

In fact...we value donuts so much, that all 3 routes/pace groups below stop at the Donut Nook. Priorities.
