Gran Fondo PEI
     April 7, 2013 — Mike Connolly

 

This year Atlantic Canada will launch its first Gran Fondo on beautiful Prince Edward Island.

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.

There is simply no better way to experience Prince Edward Island, Canada’s smallest province, than traveling off the beaten path, on a course that stretches from shore to shore, past wetlands and hardwood groves, through picturesque fishing villages, and along sand dunes and scenic rivers.

Gran Fondo PEI offers a cycling experience for everyone. We have designed gran- and medio- fondos, plus additional rides over three days, emphasizing the beauty of PEI.

Advanced cyclists will have plenty to challenge themselves and can bring their friends and family to share this riding experience. Three days of rides + great music + regional culinary delights = a getaway you'll want to repeat annually.

All participants will find the combination of rides for them along with the opportunity to experience the culture and cuisine exclusive to Prince Edward Island.

The PEI Jazz and Blues Festival, deep-sea fishing, golf excursions plus world-class culinary experiences are ongoing throughout the three days.
