Giro di Burnaby-- July 12th / 11th Annual

Giro di Burnaby

Thursday, July 12th, 2018 marks the 11th anniversary of the Giro di Burnaby!

The sound of tires hissing, cowbells clanging, and crowds cheering only means one thing -  the Giro di Burnaby! The Giro di Burnaby (pronounced GEE-ro) is part of BC Superweek, the richest event in Canadian cycling, drawing professional racers from around the world.

The Giro di Burnaby was named in honour of Italy's most prestigious cycling race, the Giro d'Italia, and is a nod to Burnaby's vibrant Italian community.

This City of Burnaby event is quickly drawing attention from athletic and promotional circuits around the world, doubling the number of spectators and drawing an impressive number of cyclist entries. The quality and safety of the course, the generous prizes and "primes" (short races with prize money) and the unique atmosphere of the Heights neighbourhood have all contributed to the event's burgeoning reputation.
