Ride with 1000 cyclists in the 4th annual Gran Fondo Baie Sainte-Marie!

Hot off the heels of another successful event in September 2017, which saw 917 cyclists participating in Nova Scotia’s largest Gran Fondo, registration opened on December 1 for the 2018 Gran Fondo Baie Sainte-Marie. On Sunday, September 23, 2018, hundreds of cyclists will gather and ride along Nova Scotia's enchanting Acadian Shore for an unforgettable cycling and cultural experience.

Congrats to our December Promo winner, Ron Jeppeson of West Chezzetcook, NS, and our Online Survey draw winner, Tamara Saulnier of Halifax, winner of a Free Registration to ride with us on September 23!

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. The region's famous Acadian hospitality and culture will be highlighted during the social event on Saturday, Sept. 22. The entire community rolls out the welcome mat as residents will enthusiastically cheer you on from the roadside, waving Acadian flags and banging pots and pans. After your unforgettable ride, share stories while savouring on fresh lobster, BBQ pork or veggie chili!
