5 Year Anniversary
I want to thank you and the team for an absolutely amazing adventure. I have completed many events all over the world and this compares right up there with the best of them, matter in fact it might just be number one or two on my list. I am not a numbers guy anymore and ride without a GPS or any of the new technology that is out there, but it was interesting to see what my riding time was, yes I could have gone much faster but then I would never have had the chance to meet Tony, it was a true pleasure to feel the spirit of the event and ride with him for many hours.
Cycle through the amazing landscapes of Southern Vancouver Island. Up the wild West coast to Port Renfrew, across the island then back to Victoria through idyllic farm and wine country.
A 270km loop around the Southern end of Vancouver Island.
Support stations every 60km. Hot meals, sport bars, jells, more real food than you can eat. Support vehicles, spare wheels, repairs - everything you need for a fine day in the saddle.
Registration opens soon
2014 Victoria Gran Fondo
One of the great rides in Canada
"Just want to thank you and your team (including family!) for your incredible organization and support of the Victoria Fondo. First class all the way! It was a complete pleasure from Fri night through to the post-massage."
"Congratulations on a great day. Our legs are somewhat recovered but we are still blown away by how well your event was last week. Thanks so much for allowing us to participate. Donna and I were especially impressed by how effortlessly the volunteers took care of the group for the day - the road support, the food, the logistics. As event directors, we know the hours of work that went into making the day a success. You even dialled in the perfect riding weather. You have a well oiled machine there and we are already planning on coming back."
"I'll be telling everyone that will listen about what a great job you and the team do!"
"Many, many, many thanks are in order to you both and your whole team of organizers, volunteers and supporters behind this outstanding event. It was truly a privilege to participate in such a 1st rate Gran Fondo. I think I speak on behalf of all the TODD's who participated that this was one of the most enjoyable rides of our lives, all thanks to your overwhelming ride support, a spectacular route and perfect weather (you guys planned that didn't you!)."
