2020 Gran Fondo Baie Sainte-Marie cancelled

After careful consideration and monitoring of public health directives surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 edition of Gran Fondo Baie Sainte-Marie has been cancelled. Our priority is the health and well-being of participants, volunteers, our community and supporters.

During the week of June 1, Gran Fondo Baie Sainte-Marie 2020 registered participants will receive an email regarding our refund process.

We will be back in 2021 with another stellar event that will meet the high quality and expectations that our participants and community have come to expect over the last five years. We hope to see you all on September 18 and 19, 2021!
