This is a safety requirement and we will be firm on this.

  • Have completed a previous version of the Gran Fondo Jasper  (165k) in under 6 hours
  • Have completed a Gran Fondo (130km+) providing proof of an average time of 27km/h

You must also agree that:

  • If you cannot make it to the base of the second climb at Edith Cavell Road within 90minutes you will no be allowed to do the climb.

Entries are awarded on a first-come/first-serve basis. It is likely that this route option will sell out very fast.
Please understand that in our first year of offering this route we must keep the number of participants manageable.

*Parks Canada have the final say on allowing access to Edith Cavell Road.  If weather/wildlife/other items arise, the event will be revised down to the Gran Fondo Distance.
