If there is a mountain bike stage race that is on just about every mountain biker’s bucket list, it’s the BC Bike Race. Known for the most sensational, technical trails, event services that are second to none, and just being a damn good bike race, this seems to be the one event just about every mountain biker wants to do. And if they’ve done it, they want to do it again.
But hang on, what if you don’t want to be against the clock? That’s where the BC Bike Ride comes in.
Riders will sample all the best singletrack Route 16 – Prince George, Burns Lake, Smithers, and Terrace – has to offer. This intermediate to advanced all-mountain guided adventure will consist of 6 days and 11 networks worth of incredible purpose-built trails to experience. Each night, riders will enjoy campfires, entertainment, and immersion in the colourful local culture of each town – as well as daily happy hours with a selection of local craft beers.
“I did BC Bike Race two years ago now. . . and it’s pretty darn cool to be back doing the BC Bike Ride now. It’s just way more laid back and we’re getting these amazing trails in and we get to travel all over [British Columbia] like we haven’t before. It’s sick!” ~ Geoff Gulevich
From the time riders are picked up at the Prince George airport until they are dropped off at the Terrace airport, everything will be taken care of as we travel 700km of Northern British Columbia – including hearty meals, nightly entertainment, mechanical assistance, and more!
If you find yourself apathetic about bike racing – you’ve had the experience, and you’re done with the intense training and sacrifice, maybe it’s time to put a bit of the fun back into mountain biking?
Registration for 2018 will open on Monday, November 27 at 9 am – there are only 50 seats available for this unique mountain bike holiday that will take place August 4 – 12, 2018.
