Back in it's fourth year, L’Alpe de Grand Blanc is a challenging, Valley to Village, 60km road bike ride from Kelowna to Big White.

Your entry fee of $70 gets you a fully supported ride with multiple rest stops along the route, commemorative t-shirt and Big White souvenirs items, along with a free burger and Okanagan Spring beer.

Swagman will be presenting prizing for the ‘King and Queen of the Mountain’ competition for the fastest man and women to complete the Black Mountain section of the course. Overall men’s and women’s winners will each receive a cash prize and limited edition ‘polka dot’ jersey, in keeping with the traditions of the Tour de France. Many great draw prizes will be given out all afternoon.

Back by popular demand is our FREE youth race which is a 9.8 km hill climb for juniors/youth starting at Gem Lake parking lot and in the Village.

All cyclists will be welcomed with great cheers as they ride into the village at Big White as live entertainment, a post-ride BBQ, cold refreshments, and an outdoor awards ceremony will be waiting their arrival.

Registration is now open, starting at $70 for an individual adult rider. From casual to competitive cyclists, everyone is invited to participate in this all-ages event!
