2020 Race Postponed

Thank you for your patience as we’ve been reading the play of this ever changing plot that has affected the entire world. At this time, we have made the difficult, but obvious choice to postpone the 2020 BC Bike Race until September. Many of you have been training for this for almost a year, and have made many sacrifices to come and do the BC Bike Race - we acknowledge how disappointed you must be. We are highly committed to seeing your dreams through and still delivering your “best week on a bike”. The BC Bike Race is a dynamic event to execute. Hosting racers from 33 countries and moving nearly 1000 people over 8 days through 8 ​communities using community recreation centers and schools in each town, with 4 ferry crossings, nearly 140 land manager agreements and a crew of nearly 275. In other words, we have many things to consider to make this date change. ​ Our leadership team is working on narrowing down dates and amended race details, and we will communicate regularly with you as plans evolve. It’s work we love to do and with our 15 years of experience and a dedicated team of event-professionals, we are up to the task, even in these extraordinary times. You’ve signed up for the Ultimate Singletrack Experience and we are committed to providing what you trusted us to do. Rescheduling this event to a different time of year will present unique challenges. We will adapt and implement stringent measures to ensure the health and wellness of our racers and crew which is of foremost importance. Where the...
