The BC Bike Race continues to plan for the future through these uncertain times. While the world currently exists in a state of flux, some may say the bike industry has had it’s best year ever, events are struggling, to adapt, to adjust and get approvals for plans. While no one knows exactly what next year will look like, we’re letting you know that we’re up to the task and ready for the “Ultimate Singletrack Experience”.

New Partnership with Whistler Brewing

New Partnership with Whistler Brewing

We’re excited to announce a new partnership with Whistler Brewing. While the relationship between beer and mountain biking is, to put it simply, “a given” – this partnership while satisfying the thirsty BC Bike Race enthusiast will go above and beyond in its scope of bringing two amazing British Columbian companies together. While BC Bike Race has become the definition of an amazing experience and a bucket list adventure for mountain bikers around the world, Whistler Brewing has defined the post ride celebration! Bringing these two amazing companies together will quench the daily thirst of mountain bikers at their finish line celebrations. Whether racing or simply out for a ride, every trailhead is the finish line for a high five and a relaxing beer. Not just any beer will do either! Beer drinkers, similar to bikers, hold some pretty high standards when it comes to what bike they choose to sit on & what beer they choose to crush after a day on the saddle.  That’s why we’ve partnered with Whistler Brewing, they’re malt-forward-thinkers who don’t rely on computers to tell them how to brew beer. Instead they rely on experience and their own hands. Along the way BCBR put their professional beer drinking team to the test sampling many fine brews from Whistler Brewing in the desire to create the perfect post-ride beer.

Join our race week Challenge

Join our race week Challenge

We would have been welcoming our 2020 racers to British Columbia today at racer check-in. Sadly, there won’t be a gathering of international mountain bikers here this July, so we invite you to join our Challenge! BC Bike Race’s first 7 day Challenge is all about getting outside, setting a big goal and having a good time achieving that goal. The challenge is open to anyone and there is no charge to participate. Everyone who rides all 7 days will be entered into a draw for some prizing. Participation is a commitment to a week of mountain biking whether for that alpine adventure, an amazing road trip or hitting that seasonal goal like the BC Bike Race. It’s only through big blocks of training and stage racing that the body can reach its full potential. You can participate on Trailforks, Zwift or Strava. A few things to note: to get the Trailforks badge you have to do a 20km, 300m ride each day Zwift rides are at 9am PST Strava rides can be logged on your own schedule, but make sure you tag them so we know they’re part of the challenge and you have to belong to the BCBR Club on Strava More details on our Challenge...
