Huge celebration

Join in! #rbcgranfondo

Think you know a good time?

Okay, okay, this is where the usual blurb tells you that this is the next best cycling experience going. But really you only need to know one thing – RBC GranFondo Silicon Valley is a party.

Naturally, you’ll ride out and back professionally supported over some of the most beautiful roads on the planet. Brunch options from award-winning restaurants? Sure. Winery detours? Check. There’s premium swag, chip timing and cop control as standard, but that’s not really what this weekend is all about.

From start-to-finish, we’re here to use two wheels as an excuse to throw one game changing fiesta. Think: hanging about with cycling celebrities, a home base at the Four Seasons Silicon Valley that’s turned into our very own ‘Celebration Plaza’ with DJs, bars and more, executive chef-curated food and drink thrown in, pool parties, the best brands all showing you their wares and some of the most influential folk in the ‘Valley, all rubbing shoulders, all here for some seriously good times.

If partying is your style, you just found the event for you.

“The event is one of the best  I’ve ever seen, anywhere…and the organisation is flawless.”
– Bob Roll, Former professional cyclist & Tour de France TV announcer

The stunning routes

La Honda; Alice’s Restaurant; The Bike Hut. Inaugural riders are set to take a tour through some of Silicon Valley’s most iconic cycling locations, tackling leg-testing climbs and magnificent descents to delight the senses throughout. Making the most of historic Stage Road as well as rugged Pacific views punctuated with riding through the ranches of Pescadero, the famous Redwoods at Purisima Creek and a procession through downtown Silicon Valley itself, you’ll experience a ride like no other.

In 2019, the riders took the full challenge of a 71 mile loop and the shorter 47 mile Medio. All of that with full police intersection support on both routes.

Celebration in the Plaza

It’s not just a ride, it’s a weekend fiesta. It’s about the experience of going for a big ride with your friends and celebrating properly afterwards. You start and finish from our dedicated Celebration Plaza carnival zone hosted at the foot of the Four Seasons East Palo Alto, and the party well and truly flows.

You’ll get an ice-cold beer, wine or soft drink when you cross the line along with a awesome hot street-food options thanks to executive chefs at the Four Seasons Silicon Valley. Pull up a chair, grab your friends and soak up the beats the DJ’s putting down. The celebration’s just getting started.
