This year Atlantic Canada will launch its first Gran Fondo on beautiful Prince Edward Island, August 23-25. Gran Fondo PEI will take riders on three days of riding experiences so close to the Atlantic Ocean that you will almost taste the salt water. Created by Cycling PEI, our unique gran fondo includes scenic views so breathtaking they are renowned worldwide.
We're pleased to announce Jeff Douglas, co-host of CBC's As it Happens will be joining us as GranFondo's First Celebrity Rider. Jeff will accompany GranFondo PEI VIPs on an exclusive ride and will be on site at the Rider's Village located in the new Charlottetown Convention Centre. Jeff will also be riding in the Gran Fondo on Saturday, and riders beware. He has a shot at the best time!
