The 2019 BC Bike Race is Sold Out

The 2019 BC Bike Race is sold out and we are looking forward to welcoming all of the racers to the start line next year – from first time participants to our 13-year returning alumni. After three years of selling out in less than 24 hours, this year’s entries rolled in a little slower.

We are honoured to have ridden on the unceded territory of the Carrier Sekani Nation and with over 800 acres of land available to the Burns Lake Mountain Bike Association (BLMA) for legal mountain bike trails – it’s incredible to see what this community has created. The Boer Mountain trail network has been recognized as one of the most progressive, sanctioned, and sustainable trail networks anywhere – and all this was accessible from our tent doors at the beautiful Kager Lake campground.

BC Bike Ride: North Vancouver to Prince George

BC Bike Ride: North Vancouver to Prince George

This past Saturday BC Bike Ride kicked off as mountain bikers from ten different countries set out to stretch their legs and warm up on the world famous trails of North Vancouver. Perhaps a bit of an ambitious location to call a ‘warm up,’ but Olympian and all-around great guy, Adam Craig thought it was great – “Welcome to Canada, this is mountain biking here!” Led by seasoned guides from Endless Biking and BC Bike Race Bike Patrol, the riders rode a variety of laps on Mount Fromme that included classics like Expresso, Dream Weaver, Seventh Secret, and Crinkum Crankum.
