Gran Fondo - Baie Sainte-Marie

Welcome to Nova Scotia's Gran Fondo!

Sunday September 24, 2017

In 2016, over 831 cyclists participated in Nova Scotia’s first Gran Fondo. In 2017, a 1000+ cyclists are expected to ride along Nova Scotia's French Acadian Shore for an unforgettable cycling and cultural experience on Sunday, September 24. In two short years, the Gran Fondo has grown into the largest cycling event in Atlantic Canada!

In Italian Gran Fondo means "Grand Tour", a mass-start cycling ride which brings together road cyclists of all abilities. The Gran Fondo Baie Sainte-Marie will appeal to those looking to ride for fun, for good health and to take on a personal challenge; all while enjoying the beautiful scenery in a safe environment.

Gran Fondo Baie Sainte-Marie is offering 4 rides in 2017: New this year, a 161.5 km SUPER GRAN loop will be offered for the hardcore cyclist! Experienced riders will be challenged by our slightly lengthened Gran 120 km or our Medio 67 km routes, while novice cyclists may prefer the shorter 35 km Piccolo Fondo. Riders will navigate rolling inland roads and pass by towering wooden churches along the panoramic coastal route that hugs beautiful Baie Sainte-Marie.

Gran Fondo Baie Sainte-Marie offers a new experience for both community residents and visiting outdoor enthusiasts—an experience that highlights the region’s Acadian culture and natural beauty.
