We are in some crazy times… even though riding your bike is a positive and healthy way to manage the social distancing and isolation we are all facing, the racing and events calendar must be put on hold. Even the Tour de France has been affected with the organizers postponing the biggest bike race in the world.

Our L’Alpe de Grand Blanc will take a hiatus for July of 2020 with the hopes of coming back strong in 2021. #staystrong #staysafe


Back for it's 6th 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 from The Woods.
