Gran Fondo Badlands - July 6, 2024


The Drumheller Valley is one with a rich and unique heritage. The dinosaur capital of the world, and some of the most iconic landscapes you will ever encounter. Located a little NE of Calgary, the Gran Fondo Badlands travels through the heart of the stunning hoodoos and mighty Red Deer River.

You’re going to have a truly epic experience, passing through prehistoric and picturesque hoodoos and through the lush river valley.

Gran Fondo Badlands offers a rewarding challenge for the weekend warrior, hardcore roadie, triathlete-in-training (tri bikes & TT bikes are welcome!) or anyone who simply wants to ride their bike along this scenic route. Riders of all abilities (e-bikes are welcome!) will appreciate the opportunity to ride at their own pace while enjoying first-class support along the way.
