Whether new in the saddle, a cycling enthusiast or a triathlete in training, we have a route for you!  The ride begins in Cardston, Alberta, which is known for its spectacular view of the Rocky Mountains, particularly Chief Mountain.   The longer distances will start by heading south towards the Carway border crossing.  Roughly 10 km later, the 140 cyclists will detour towards Police Lake Provincial Park. Both the 100 and 140km cyclists will end up near the Carway border crossing, where they will turn around and return to Cardston before the final 50 km that takes them to Mountain View and back.  The 50km route will go to Mountain View, Alberta.  All roads are paved, and the highways have a nice large shoulder!   

Camping Option

Need somewhere to stay?

We have tent and trailer sites available for Friday July 26th across the street from our staging area!  Tents will be positioned on a grassy, flat area, while trailers will be on a flat gravel lot.  There will be no water/power/sewer hook ups, but we will provide porte-potties and there are flush toilets a football field away.

To reserve your spot, simply e-transfer $15 for a tent site or $20 for a trailer site to fees@bikec4.com with the registrant's name in the memo.  (ie: Camping for John Doe)

Our Purpose:

C4 (Cardston Community Cycling Club) began with a mission to get our community members active, through cycling! We have a particular interest in youth - teaching them safety, providing them something to DO, and keeping them active,  One of our main goals is to build a mountain bike skills park in town.  Unfortunately, this comes with a significant price tag.  This is where the C4 Gran Fondo comes in!

We love cycling, and we know you do too! This event brings a cycling event to Southern Alberta, while helping us reach our goal of building a bike skills park for our youth! 

100% of the proceeds from the C4 Gran Fondo will go towards building the skills park.  Your registration will provide kids with endless fun!  Our race directors / organizers are operating on volunteer basis.

Thank you to our Gold Sponsors
