"I did the granfondo clinic with Ryan and Gord. It was an amazing learning experience and I learned a lot of skills as a cyclist and had great camaraderie with other students. Having no experience on a road bicycle, the granfondo from Vancouver to Whistler seemed such a daunting task. They gave the confidence and skills needed to complete the race!" - Tabitha Li
"I did the granfondo clinic last year with Ryan and Gord. Met quite a few people and also managed to take 2 hours off my time from the previous year. Definitely a great place to learn and shop." - Bieu Bradford
