Sign up for this virtual '12 Day Challenge' event from the makers of RBC GranFondo Whistler and not only will you get a goal and finishers' memento, you'll also directly support families and those in need with 100% of entry proceeds being donated to Food Bank Canada – plus choose other causes near you to voluntarily donate to!


You've got 12 days to complete either a 55km, 122km or 152km challenge, and you can add to your total cumulatively or simply make it a long day in the saddle, wherever you are in the world. It's also a great opportunity to get your kids involved: can they be inspired and ride any of these distances over 12 days with your help?

Then, share your photos and show everyone how epic you are!

Prizes: Everyone who completes the challenge will be entered into a draw of over 160 fantastic prizes from our partners:

- Trek: 2020 Emonda SL 5 road bike (RRP $3499.99)
- Helijet: Roundtrip Travel between Vancouver & Victoria for a family of 4 (2 adults + 2 children under 12) PLUS 1 night accommodation at the Fairmont Empress Hotel in Victoria (RRP $2350)
- Red Truck: 50 8-packs of craft beer or vodka sodas
- Volvo: a weekend in a 2020 Volvo vehicle, PLUS get a coupon for $1000 off a new Volvo in the months of September / October 2020
- CLIF: 40 boxes of CLIF Bloks and CLIF Bars – 40 different winners!
- DUER: Giftcard for three pairs of new jeans (RRP $450), PLUS 15% off their online store
- nuun: Large cannister of endurance and a tube of each of their product lines, plus 50 tubes of nuun sport – 50 different winners!

You'll also get a unique digital finishers' medal and badge to show off your achievement.

You can ride solo or create your team and ride virtually together! Want to make even more of a difference for your community? Select a fundraising partner to raise money for, and get your family, colleagues, and friends to sponsor you. We might not be able to ride together, but together we can still make a difference to the lives of those around us.
