Ride with more than 900 cyclists in the 3rd annual Gran Fondo Baie Sainte-Marie!

Hot off the heels of another successful event in September 2016, which saw 831 cyclists participating in Nova Scotia’s Gran Fondo, registration opened in January for the 2017 Gran Fondo Baie Sainte-Marie. On Sunday, September 24, 2017, hundreds of cyclists will gather and ride along Nova Scotia's enchanting Acadian Shore for an unforgettable cycling and cultural experience.

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. Although a timed event, this is more of a self-paced FUN group event, rather than a race. There will also be opportunities to sample Acadian fare at nutrition breaks.
