Gran Fondo Baie Sainte-Marie will be offering four rides in 2017!

New for 2017, a 160.6 km SUPER GRAN loop will be offered for the hardcore cyclist! Experienced riders will be challenged by our Gran 118 km or our Medio 67 km , 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. Both the Super Gran and Medio Fondo rides will take participants around the scenic Bas-de-la-Rivière loop with vistas of la Baie Sainte-Marie and Digby Neck.

Downloadable maps of each route are below, along with images and elevation profiles.

Debating which distance to ride? We highly recommend that you sign up early (by July 31) to take advantage of the best value jersey package. You can actually change your route distance on the morning of event day!

All rides will start in a staging area adjacent to the Clare Veterans Centre, at the Vélo Baie Sainte-Marie mini-mall parking lot (9976 Highway 1, Saulnierville). See Schedule for more details.
