Nothing compares to the remote majesty of the Canadian Rockies. Located SW of Calgary, the ATB Financial Gran Fondo Highwood Pass travels 134 km or 69 km through the heart of the Rockies on the highest paved road pass in Canada. You’re going to have a truly epic experience, passing through huge mountain ranges and sharing the scenery with wildlife like elk, deer, moose, big horn sheep, and possibly even bear during this wheeled trek.
Gran Fondo Highwood Pass offers a rewarding challenge for the weekend warrior, hardcore roadie or triathlete-in-training. Riders of all abilities will appreciate the opportunity to ride one of our two distances at their own pace while enjoying first-class support.
