You'll start in downtown Sechelt with a jaunt along the road bordering Porpoise Bay before hitting the trails. From here, you'll move into some singletrack and work your way upwards. This section of trail takes you to awesome views of the ocean below - you might even see your ferry coming in from up here!
Finally, you'll rocket down our favourite descent to finish in Langdale and BC Ferries will take you to Horseshoe Bay, where you'll hop on a bus to get up to the Base Camp in Squamish.

Enduro #1 - Hwy 102 - Finally after the majority of the epic course is complete you are onto the final home stretch 90% downhill. Hwy 102 drops quickly down an old skid road to a tight left hander, then buries itself into some amazing undulating trail, another quick skid road and you will find yourself pedaling madly down what is some beautiful mature singletrack, but effort is required, pace yourself.
Avrg Grade: 10.00%
Enduro #2 - Sidewinder - This singletrack winds madly around the side of a hill, a grade that entices the eyes and the senses but requires attention and pedalling. Slowly it drops into the Sprockids Mtb Park and begins a journery around some well crafted features and takes you continuously down towards the BC Ferries and the end of Day 5.
Rat Race Trail System - these are gentle, buff, and fast rainforest trails that you'll love. Most of the time, you'll be immersed in the forest under 30-40 metre tall trees, so take a moment to enjoy the scenery.
Highway 103 - after some climbing, you'll reach what is argueably the best descent in the entire BC Bike Race! Highway 102 is almost seven kilometres of sweet singletrack downhill through the dense forest, popping you out at the Langdale Terminal. Then it's on to Squamish for the night!
The trail deposits you at Langdale Ferry Terminal where you'll find post-race refreshments, bike wash, bike transport, and showers.
After a ferry trip and a bus ride, you'll be in Squamish sitting under the shadow of the Stawamus Cheif, who's Grand Wall (702m) was first climbed 50 years ago to the day when we arrive in town! There's also a Community Centre with access to a pool and hot tub to ease those tired legs.
