If you are flying in, please book your flights to the Vancouver International Airport (YVR), from YVR, you’ll be able to take a cab or public transit to North Vancouver.

We strongly recommend that you arrive with plenty of time to spare. The extra couple days to explore the trails, fix up your bike, and sort out your gear will pay off during race week!
